The Homeless Outreach Program delivers mobile street outreach to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in St Louis and surrounding areas. Outreach workers seek out individuals in need living on the streets, under viaducts, and other places not meant for human habitation. The team offers basic survival items, food, sleeping bags, coats, and other necessities. Through consistent contact, the outreach team works to build trust in order to learn about the needs of those served. Outreach workers offer referrals, care coordination, and transportation to services in the community.

2022 US Homeless Statics
The Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Veterans Affairs consider a person to be homeless if they are sleeping outside, in a place not meant for human habitation such as a car or abandoned building, or in an emergency shelter or transitional housing program. Other federal agencies have different definitions for homelessness. These include the Department of Education, which includes youth who are living doubled-up with family or friends.
- During the 2019-2020 school year, nearly 1.3 million public school children — 2.5% of all enrolled students — experienced homelessness.
- Young Black people have an 83% higher risk of becoming homeless than their white counterparts.
- Young Hispanic people have a 33% greater chance of experiencing homelessness than their white counterparts.
In addition to these agencies’ definitions, there is also a “functional definition” of homelessness that is used by The Street People. This definition considers someone homeless if they lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
