Hide and Seek

Outreach is facing a set of challenges as a result of seasonal changes and recent motions by the city to gate off camps and bridges that many of our city’s homeless lay their heads each night. Because camps are getting driven out of their usual places, our clients are much more scattered throughout the city. The fall weather draws some people to shelter, but not in the droves we anticipate for SWES. (Severe Weather Emergency Shelter). This is an extremely interesting time to be involved with OSN and Pittsburgh because of the changes downtown is looking to make on the face of our city. Below is an article that touches on the topic:
