North County Outreach
- Robbi Montoya, Outreach and Intake Supervisor
A core service, and initial step for many potential Hub clients, is targeted street outreach. BFHP’s outreach team covers the cities of Berkeley, Emeryville and Albany, on a varying schedule to include early mornings and evenings, in order to best reach people on the streets.
Our team offers items that will meet a person’s immediate, basic needs, as well as providing information about services at the Hub. If someone is interested in doing an assessment to determine whether they are eligible for additional services, the team can conduct one in situ. The outreach team periodically includes a Transition Age Youth Outreach Specialist and Housing Navigators may also join the team – especially on visits to larger encampment sites, or to reconnect with clients who have been through the assessment process but are still living on the streets.
