Bridging the Gap: Community Outreach Program

Collaborator: Safe Place for Youth




Youth Served by the COE Program

In November 2020, Specialty Family Foundation awarded Safe Place for Youth a $50,000 grant to support their Community Outreach & Engagement (COE) Program. The COE Program at SPY connects youth living on the streets with the services and resources necessary for exiting the streets and maintaining self-sufficiency. In 2020, 259 individual youth were supported by SPY’s COE Program and connected to life-saving services.

“Transitioning youth from the streets into housing would not be possible without our Community Outreach & Engagement Program which connects youth to our Drop-In Center and housing programs. In 2020, 140 youth contacted during street outreach came to SPY’s Drop-In Center and received support.” – SPY Staff Member
