Clean and Safe

dtp connects

Through a partnership with Old Pueblo Community Services (OPCS), individuals experiencing homelessness are receiving services and being placed in homes and shelters utilizing the Housing First model. Onsite interviews and assessments were provided by a dedicated community engagement specialist at homeless encampments and on the street via a DTP Connects mobile unit. The mobile unit continues to make contact with individuals every weekday. By collaborating with various organizations in the Tucson area, we are reducing homelessness in our city.
