DPV Outreach NPO 271 - 223

DPV Outreach's approach is to build a sustainable, long-term model that deals with the bigger picture of homelessness, by tapping into the knowledge and experience of organisations such as Streetscapes and other NGOs working with the homeless and working together with them to find sustainable solutions to current issues; and engaging with local stakeholders in the community.
To start with, we see our role as twofold. First, as a conduit between the homeless community in our area and housed residents, and vice versa - which is where the role of Chantel, our fieldworker, is critical. Second, we want to support the work and rehabilitation programmes that Streetscapes (and other NGOs) offer to homeless individuals, so that they can effect permanent, sustainable change in their lives.
