From April 1 to October 31, our outreach team travels the city to visit 15-30 unsheltered clients per week, bringing water, food, toilet paper, and other basic needs. HK partners with local healthcare providers to administer first aid and basic healthcare to these clients. Regular, consistent visits build trust and lay a foundation for clients to lean on when they are ready to move into shelter.
Emergency Winter Shelter
From November to March, we operate two no-barrier Emergency Winter Shelters—one for men and one for women. Clients have nightly access to a safe place to sleep, hot meals, clean clothes, and basic healthcare. Outreach managers continue to work with clients in shelter to identify their next best step. With this coaching, many clients then move on into extended shelter.
HumanKind also operates one year-round homeless shelter. The Inn is a 60-bed, low-barrier shelter for individuals, families, and those with pets. A typical stay is around 45 days and in that time clients meet one-on-one with a Case Manager to address their obstacles to secure housing and work toward long-term stability.
