General Information
Description of ServiceThe Synergy Project, a street outreach program, is designed to help runaway, homeless, nomadic and street youth, age 21 and under, in Bucks County, Philadelphia, Allentown, and Dauphin County. The program offers survival supplies (food, clothes, hygienic products, sleeping bags, tents, tarps, etc.), peer support, informal counseling (individual, family, or group), information and referral services and assistance to get off the streets, if desired. Street Outreach coordinators spend most of their time in a Jeep, van, on a mountain bike, canoe or kayak, or walking to remote areas or an city streets reaching out to youth who tend to settle in places that are not easily accessible, assisting them to find permanent housing or making it safer for them to be on the streets.
