Street Outreach Programs

Street Outreach Programs

Through the Street Outreach Programs, “boots on the ground” teams canvas communities in search of runaway, homeless, and other at-risk youth, ages 12-24. They walk the streets of Manchester, Strafford County, eastern Rockingham County, and Merrimack County to help connect vulnerable youth to the services they need.

Street Outreach Programs do just what the name says – our teams get out on the streets in areas throughout NH to reach out to young people who are at risk of experiencing, or are experiencing, housing instability or homelessness. Teams are out almost every day of the year and go just about everywhere – parks, the woods, river fronts, cemeteries, downtown, off the beaten path, and along the beaches in the Seacoast and Manchester regions. Their mission is to be a lifeline to at-risk youth by meeting immediate basic needs and providing services for safe, stable, and self-sufficient futures.

Street Outreach Programs serve young people ages 12 through 24.
