Street Outreach

Street-based outreach and case management for at-risk and homeless youth.

Young homeless people in Milwaukee often leave home due to violence, and once out on the street they frequently encounter even more violence and exploitation. Some also find that they are forced to trade sex for a place to live. Within three days of becoming homeless, one in three youth will turn to “survival sex” for a safe place to sleep and food to eat.

Pathfinders operates Milwaukee’s only youth-focused, homeless street outreach program, Street Beat. The street outreach team travels to places where youth gather and provide street-based case management, personal advocacy, peer support, prevention education, survival aid resources and assistance with accessing youth shelter services. The Street Beat team has a regular schedule of outreach sites and roving times throughout the City of Milwaukee.
