Unit 2 Recording: How to Start a Police Homeless Outreach Team in Three Easy Steps

As police agencies continue to struggle with more questions than answers about homelessness, many are starting homeless outreach teams (HOTs) to permanently address the problem rather than the symptoms.

In the sequel to “The Top 10 Reasons to Start a Police Homeless Outreach Team”, attendees will learn how to develop their own team, from the ground up, covering topics such as:

  • The building blocks of police homeless outreach
  • How to start small and think big
  • Making the leap from enforcement to outreach (it’s easier than you think)
  • Integrating your team into Coordinated Entry and your local Continuum of Care
  • Leveraging community partnerships to end homelessness

Audience Comments:

  • “I liked the actionable information at the end.” — Brenda
  • “I liked the flow charts he uses. They seem to walk us through the red tape that sometimes is involved.” — Donna
  • “What a great summary of how officers can build and operate within a system that is focused on solving problems rather than on measuring numbers of contacts and activities. Very helpful information and I might add, very much in keeping with the generally excellent quality of training offered by Justice Clearinghouse.” — Joni
  • “It is more cost-efficient to provide housing for the homeless than spending the money on outreach programs.” — Rose
