Welcome to the HOST Program

The Homeless Outreach Service Team, aka HOST, is a proactive and collaborative effort to move the community beyond enforcement of order maintenance issues—public intoxication, disorderly conduct, et cetera—to a partnership with homeless service providers that connects homeless individuals with social services and resources.

HOST Videos:

  • PSA: Turning Spare Change into Real Change, November 2012.
