The Homeless Street Outreach Team is made up of four outreach team workers who conduct daily mobile outreach focusing on the homeless on the streets, at service venues, and other locations where they can be found in the City of Riverside.

The Outreach Team also responds to the needs and concerns of business operators, residents, and others relative to issues of homelessness in the community. Staff from local service provider agencies as well as community volunteers assist the Team through “ride-alongs” throughout the week.
The Homeless Street Outreach Team operates from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday and various weekend hours as assigned.

Our mission is to provide essential services to families, adults, and children who lack basic resources to sustain themselves within our community.
The goal is to provide emergency services to help the homeless and low-income families avoid homelessness, restart lives, and to break the cycle of homelessness.
A Full Service Community Agency Valley Restart provides both emergency homeless services to residents of Southwest Riverside County and on-going programs to the community.
Our 24-hour facility is open every day of the year to provide housing and food to those in need. This is a working shelter. The residents help support the program with the upkeep of the facility.
As part of our goal of helping our residents to restart their lives, Valley Restart Shelter offers a number of programs: assessment, education, information and referrals related to gaining self-sufficiency and independence.
Our Case Managers work closely with our residents to see that they set goals for themselves and then help the residents to reach those goals. Goal-setting begins during the intake process, and progress is monitored daily. Our professional counselors help with crisis intervention. Because we are a drug and alcohol-free facility, we do random observed testing. Many participants take advantage of the services offered across the street at Riverside County Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, as well as our daily NA meetings.
As part of our goal to return our participants to the community in active, self-sufficient roles, our program teaches our participants how to function in society. We encourage saving of money earned with a mandatory savings of 80% of all income sources. This mechanism supports efforts while staying at VRS so they are prepared to meet the costs associated with living in our community.
