Street Outreach Program
The Street Outreach Program provides intervention services for runaway, homeless, and street youth to assist them in establishing safer living conditions.
The program focuses on assisting youth in decreasing risk behavior and stabilizing their living situation by leaving the streets. This program works in conjunction with the Amistad Crisis Shelter.
Program Staff conduct street outreach in the Albuquerque metropolitan area focusing on locations know to be frequented by homeless youth. In addition to street outreach services, the program has also established a small drop in center called La Esquina Segura (The Safe Corner) where homeless youth can drop in for a rest, meet with staff, be provided food, and receive other offered services.
