Street Outreach, Harm Reduction and Deflection (SOHRAD) Team
Orange County Street Outreach Team has started working in the community
The Street Outreach, Harm Reduction and Deflection program is a new effort to connect people experiencing homelessness in Orange County with housing and services. Peer support and clinical staff, using a relationship-based model, will provide ongoing engagement, response and case management to unsheltered individuals with the goal of enhancing harm reduction and deflecting individuals from law enforcement and justice system involvement, where safe and appropriate.
