OUTREACH TEAM

When we say our mission is to make downtown Vancouver safe and welcoming for everyone, we mean everyone. Our Outreach Team is a dedicated source of support for members of our community who want or need assistance.

CREATING CONNECTION VIA COMPASSION

Outreach Ambassadors can assist with housing, facilitate meals, showers and clothing, coordinate specialized mental health treatment and crisis response services, and even administer first aid.

In order to provide informed, person-first support, Outreach Ambassadors lead with compassion and are trained in conflict de-escalation, Occupational First Aid Level 1, Mental Health First Aid, Trauma Training and Indigenous Awareness. They maintain confidentiality and will never disclose personal information obtained during the course of their work. 

If you or someone you know could use support in the downtown core, please reach out.
