The Community Outreach Program has been established in the Norristown Area to provide support to persons who need assistance in accessing both behavioral health and general support services. Our Outreach specialist provides direct interaction with local businesses, social service agencies, shelters, police departments, hospitals, churches, the library, neighborhoods, and drop-in centers to identify persons in need of outreach and support, who may or may not already be receiving behavioral health services.
We strive to maintain a working, educational and supportive relationship with individuals, organizations and businesses in the Norristown area and surrounding communities in Montgomery County. We also aim to educate individuals and organization about the community services and resources available for them to access. It is our goal to collaborate with local behavioral health systems and respond to persons with behavioral health needs and co-occurring disorders who are experiencing difficulty in locating treatment, support, or meaningful social activities, and/or who may be homeless or in danger of becoming homeless. Work closely with the coordinators of homeless outreach center (CHOC).
