StreetReach focuses on promoting recovery among individuals who are homeless and have mental health and co-occurring mental health/substance use disorders, to assist them in securing appropriate treatment, benefits, and permanent housing.
A network180-funded program of community case management and PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) provides services to single adults who are homeless in the Kent County area. The team focus is outreach and engagement with this population that may lead to appropriate service provision with a strong emphasis on housing.
In addition, SOAR (SSI/SSDI Outreach Access and Recovery), which is partially funded by Heart of West Michigan United Way as well as network180, assists those who qualify for PATH, have chronic health issues, have significant barriers to daily functioning, and have no income to apply for SSI/SSDI benefits.
Street reach is an active partner in the Grand Rapids Area Coalition to End Homelessness where ongoing work is being done to link community housing resources with those in the midst of a housing crisis, as well as create system change to end homelessness.

The StreetReach team embraces a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and recovery with individuals who have chronic mental, health and substance-related disorders. The team can assist individuals in navigating various mental health, social, housing, legal and health care service providers. Case managers provide linkage and coordination with services and benefits, with a strong emphasis on housing and increased overall stability. Group therapy and peer support services are also provided. The team utilizes best practices such as harm reduction and motivational interviewing. Co-occurring coping skills and health education groups and one-on-one coaching assist participants in developing decision-making skills. For those individuals in active recovery, case managers work with recovery concepts and relapse-prevention groups.
