During the COVID-19 pandemic, Amistad, in partnership with the City of El Paso, aimed to address homeliness in the community by providing rapid rehousing, homelessness prevention and street outreach. Together we assisted over 100 individuals in obtaining housing, rehabilitation, and critical resources.
Through new funding from the City of El Paso, Amistad will continue to serve the homeless population through our Street Outreach Program. This program provides essential services to eligible unsheltered individuals and households who reside on the streets or in a place not meant for human habitation such as connecting them to emergency shelter, housing, and other services. The individuals are provided hygiene kits, referrals to community services and transportation to an emergency shelter upon request. We understand this need goes beyond regular hours of operation, and our Intensive Case Managers are here to serve.
