Street Crew and our mission to know every person sleeping rough
On Saturday 25 February we joined forces with the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion, City of Adelaide, Baptist Care SA, HYPA and Uniting Communities to launch Street Crew - an outreach service to better support people sleeping rough in Adelaide.
Late last year when we collectively learnt that 75% of rough sleepers were not connected to any services, and the number of rough sleepers was increasing - we knew something had to be done, and that we could do better.
We are on a mission to know the name of every person sleeping rough in Adelaide, and to help connect them to services to help end their homelessness. The Street Crew team includes Outreach Workers and Volunteers, GPs, Nurses and Allied Health Services and will hit the streets and parks 7 days a week from 1pm - 7pm.
