Mission of Street Outreach
The street outreach teams of OIM “come to walk alongside” people experiencing poverty and homelessness in the downtown core.
Vision of Street Outreach
We will be effective ambassadors for Christ in ministering to the wounded members of our inner city community and in helping each one function at their optimal level in society.
Volunteer Opportunities on Street Outreach
We have street outreach teams who go on to the streets throughout the week.
Our Outreach Teams go under bridges, to emergency shelters to help outside consistently loving, guiding, empowering and supporting those from our homeless street community. Volunteer teams provide:
- Relief provisions
- Personal care
- Crisis intervention
The following requirements are set out by OIM for all Street Outreach team members:
- Attend the Urban Intervention Training (UIT)
- Have experience as an volunteer through our street outreach or drop in services
- Complete a OIM Volunteer Application (will receive upon completion of UIT), including a police check form
- Upon completion of the above requirements, a final interview will determine suitability for volunteering
