Outreach Support Services

Kamloops Streets

The ASK Wellness Society provides a range of outreach support services designed to assist members of our community who are facing homelessness, mental health, substance misuse, or a combination of these factors. This is achieved by providing a range of services with a two-pronged approach of Harm Reduction and Education. The Society also provides Third Party supports for clients who need to access government services but are unable to attend at Ministry of Social Development sites

Street
Outreach

Street Outreach works to effectively case manage street entrenched individuals to ensure they are connected to adequate resources, in an effort to meet basic needs. This continues to be done in partnership with other service providers, such as Interior Health Authority (IHA), Interior
Community Services (ICS), Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), and
Aboriginal Friendship Society (AFS).

Overdose Prevention

Overdose Prevention serves as a first point of contact for those facing homelessness, or anybody who is affected by substance use and does not know where to turn. From these services, we connect community members in need with health and housing resources. The program works to deliver safe and effective harm reduction services to individuals, while mitigating the impact of homelessness and addiction to community members and business partners.
