At Citizens Outreach Foundation, we are dedicated to offering a lifeline to those facing hardships on the streets. Our diverse range of programs is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual we serve. From providing essentials like food, clothing, and toiletries, to more substantial support such as rental assistance and job re-entry tools like laptops and phones, we are committed to helping people rebuild their lives. Our efforts include nourishing those who are working but struggling, offering transportation solutions, and providing emergency shelter and detox assistance. Special initiatives like 'Reset' cater to the elderly, offering temporary hotel stays and essentials, while our 'Rescue' program focuses on harm reduction for I.V. drug users. Each program is designed with the goal of guiding individuals from crisis to stability, empowering them to lead productive and fulfilling lives
