The author introduces an outreach model based on universal principles of ecology and development in order to better serve disaffiliated, homeless adults with psychiatric disabilities. The outreach process is viewed as transactional in nature and consisting of manageable stages. This presents a transactional and phasic context for a psychosocial developmental assessment which identifies client-worker issues relevant to each phase of the engagement process. This model provides outreach counselors with guidance toward establishing the critical helping relationship needed for homeless persons with psychiatric disabilities to transition to a home in the community.
