In this episode, we meet Jeff and Tina. Jeff is an experienced outreach worker who is mentoring Tina, a new outreach worker, as they conduct street outreach to people experiencing homelessness. They are focused on engaging people and building relationships so they can connect people with other services. They meet a man on the street and attempt to engage in conversation. He does not seem ready to talk. They tell him about nearby services, leave an information card and a bottle of water, and ask if they can check in with him another time. The encounter is brief, and the outreach workers move on.
