Description:

The Homeless Outreach Program is a grant-funded program between the state of Tennessee, Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation and Fortwood Center. HOP is designed to provide outreach services for homeless families to identify children and youth who may have SED or who may be at risk of SED, to assist the parent in securing needed mental health services for their children and to link the parents with other services needed to keep the family intact and healthy. Homeless outreach, while not an emergency or crisis service, is a temporary service. It is in effect until the homeless family becomes linked with more durable, on-going case management, treatment and other social services; no longer homeless; or has moved.
