Every Tuesday night our Homeless Outreach department teams up with UB HEALS medical students and staff from Neighborhood Health Center to conduct outreach in areas throughout Buffalo, providing food, housing, and healthcare resources to clients they meet along the way. The past couple weeks the group has visited the Canalside area, showing that outreach happens everywhere because homelessness doesn't conform to geographic boundaries. Our team's goal is to meet people where they are at both figuratively and physically.
