The program, which originated in the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale area also assists homeless individuals in obtaining identification and social services so they can gain employment, become eligible for long term housing, receive benefits, enter into alcohol/drug treatment and assist with any mental health issues. The Homeless Outreach Team also assists homeless veterans and reunites families that have been displaced. Many homeless individuals are now in long term housing and have overcome their homeless situation due to the program. The program receives calls from area business, churches and individuals through the outreach hotline.
This program is now expanded and attached to the Community Redevelopment Policing Unit.
