The CAAPS Community Outreach team works on the ground to reach some of our community's most vulnerable members. This includes individuals and families residing in town communities and camps within the Darwin and Palmerston areas who may not otherwise actively seek out engagement with service providers. The Outreach Team provides information on CAAPS services, conducts assessments for entry into the 12 week Rehabilitation Program and will provide referrals to other services if required.
In addition the Outreach Team also makes regular visits to local hostels and crisis shelters to conduct assessments and provide brief interventions to interested individuals and their families.
The CAAPS Outreach Team also has a Homelessness Outreach Support Worker whose role is to support clients currently participating in the 12 Week Residential Program, to access accommodation when they have completed the program. The worker also supports partcipants who are accommodated under Territory Housing to sustain thier current tenancies. The Homelessness Outreach Support Worker also assists with community referrals for housing support and information.
