They include skills training, group and/or 1-1 counseling, family mediation, referrals, housing support, outreach, hot meals, food hampers shower and laundry facilities, advocacy, access to prescription medication subsidies, access to medical care, clothing, recreational opportunities and public education regarding homelessness.
