Street Outreach, started at ICAN in early 2020, has the goal of locating street homeless individuals to connect them to services and assist them with finding housing. The Street Outreach Team consists of 2 full time staff, working mostly remotely with flexible work hours to meet the needs of those we are serving. We will partner with our ICAN mobile unit to connect with clients at soup kitchens, food pantries, hospitals and other identified areas within Oneida County. We will also work to form relationships with other community partners including law enforcement and shelters so that we are best reaching the homeless individuals and families that might not otherwise have access to services. Street Outreach will provide a 24 hour on-call service to place un-sheltered individuals in emergency housing and assess immediate needs.

Why Consider Street Outreach
Our Team Approach
We embrace the Wraparound model for all of our care, services and programs. Our staff works collaboratively to develop and implement customized treatment plans for the individuals and families in our programs, and each team member contributes to our clients’ successes.
Empowerment & Support
At ICAN, we strive to empower and support individuals and families facing life challenges, by providing them with the tools to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. We assist them with succeeding in any goal they may have set, whether it be recovering from addiction, finding success in the classroom, creating a healthy home for their family as they anticipate the birth of a child, or seeking support and community resources, all while keeping families together as they process through their traumas.
Access To Resources
We connect individuals and families with critical community resources, such as access to physical and mental health providers, employment opportunities, housing options, peer support groups, and Wraparound services. We understand that access to some of these services can be difficult to attain during certain life challenges, and we are here to help individuals and families overcome this obstacle.
