HOPE Street Outreach Team

Sulzbacher’s HOPE Teams (Homeless Outreach Project Expansion) are street outreach teams that work to engage and bring services to those persons experiencing homelessness who are living on the streets in Downtown Jacksonville and at the Beaches. Designed with a medical focus, the HOPE Teams utilize trained medical outreach specialists to engage individuals and begin to build the trust needed to provide services. The HOPE Teams distribute clothing, blankets, food, water, and basic hygiene items to their clients. Medical and psychiatric staff travels with the van to provide medical outreach. Sulzbacher operates two HOPE Teams, one serves the greater downtown area, and a second team serves the communities of Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach. Three additional HOPE Teams are operated in partnership with Changing Homelessness and the Department of Veterans Affairs. These teams are dedicated to meeting the needs of our homeless Veterans.
