Skid Row Outreach Team

The Skid Row Medical Outreach Team seeks out disenfranchised homeless individuals in the Los Angeles downtown area of Central City East commonly known as skid row. This program is one of our many collaborative efforts with Homeless Health Care Los Angeles (HHCLA). Outreach workers walk the streets, alleys and under freeways engaging individuals in conversation, while offering referrals. Community health workers conduct health assessment and referrals at sites throughout the area including:Skid Row Outreach

At each clinic session, while the other team members conduct health assessments, the peer outreach case manager meets with homeless people individually and in groups, offering resources for substance abuse treatment, incentives for treatment, and a listening ear.
