This week, the Salem Outreach and Livability Services (SOS) Team will continue responding to areas of concern, help connect people to resources, and support removal of accumulated garbage at Cascades Gateway Park. The team is also continuing daily outreach to known locations where people are living out of doors to try to facilitate their connection to shelter.
We know relationship-building through regular communication increases the chances individuals will connect with available services. These contacts also help us keep conditions cleaner and healthier, removing as much accumulated garbage as possible, on a regular basis.
Watch for new job openings! We are recruiting additional outreach support, through our Salem Housing Authority, to help us continue to try to meet individual needs of those we encounter.
