Street Outreach

 We should treat all strangers well who seek our help. Under a ragged coat they may hide their wings!

Street Outreach

Our Street Outreach program in Duluth, MN is our way to serve those who cannot or will not stay in shelter. 

Chum’s Street Outreach Staff work with people who are living on the street, in the woods, or in other places unfit for human habitation. Chum's Street Outreach works with about 150-200 people a year. Most are experiencing long-term or chronic homelessness (defined by HUD as homeless with a disability). Chum staff help them meet their basic needs, stabilize their housing, and reduce their contact with the police. We advocate for and with them when they are involved with law enforcement, corrections, health care and other public systems.

Please Consider Supporting Chum

There are many ways to support us! A gift of money can help us support all of our programs. A gift of time, through volunteering, can help us complete crucial projects. And donations of warmth, clothing, and shelter help keep folks living outside of shelter alive.
