The Streetwork Program is based on a harm reduction philosophy that focuses on building trust and fostering self-esteem to empower youth to change their high-risk behaviors. This program provides counseling, stabilization, and case management and focuses on enhancing individuality to homeless, street-involved youth. The Streetwork Project is committed to reaching out to the homeless and disenfranchised youth of New York City, offering them respite from hunger, cold, loneliness and fear and the opportunity to reclaim for themselves a sense of dignity and self-worth. Our goal is to extend ourselves to these young people through our presence on the streets, through the services we provide and through the love we are willing to express. With every bag lunch, medical appointment, referral, condom and group we offer, we communicate to our clients our concern for their lives and our belief in their potential. Our mission is to act as a catalyst for their self-empowerment (Authors).
