Street outreach workers can turn to a new resource to learn the ins and outs of making contact with and serving homeless young people, or to brush up on their skills. SAMHSA's Projects for Assistance in Transition From Homelessness offers a three-part video series that follows fictional outreach workers as they make initial contact with a man experiencing homelessness, visit him again, and then connect him with services. Each video is about seven minutes long. Read the discussion guide and view all three episodes.
