Outreach is an activity of providing support and services to populations who might not otherwise have access to those services. A key component of outreach is the mobility of the provider. Participants will learn the importance in meeting individuals at their respective locations. In addition to delivering services, outreach has an educational role to raise the awareness of existing services and to provide a safe path for the individual to meet more complex needs.
