We at T.O.U.C.H Outreach strive to engage with our communities directly, connecting with people on the street to find out what they need and providing resources. We are also trained in de-escalation, stepping in to help deter crime from happening through crisis prevention. We are reimagining public safety through a public health approach - spreading love and hope to our communities through Outreach, Community Engagement, and Violence Prevention.

Our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly in the actions of our initiatives. From the moment we started our work in 2020, we understood that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch T.O.U.C.H Outreach. We strive to make a positive change in all of our pursuits.
