CITY HALL -- The de Blasio administration will train 18,000 city
employees in using a 311 app to request help from social services
workers when they see homeless individuals across the five boroughs in
an effort to get them off the streets.
The new initiative, known as Outreach NYC, comes after a homeless man
bludgeoned four other homeless individuals to death in Chinatown in October.
As part of the new effort, the city will train city employees from the
Department of Sanitation, Health Department, Fire Department, Department
of Buildings and the Parks Department in how to use the app to submit
service requests when they see street homeless individuals.
Those service requests will then be routed to the city’s newly created
Joint Command Center, which was announced earlier this year and managed
by the Department of Homeless Services and the NYPD.
Staff from those agencies will then look at trends and send multi-agency
responses when needed to provide assistance to high-need individuals.
The new initiative comes as a 200-family homeless shelter is set to open
across the street from Tompkinsville Park next year. The shelter is
slated to bring as many as 500 mostly women and children tenants.
“We’ve made significant progress in addressing our city’s homelessness
crisis under Turning the Tide—and with Outreach NYC, we’re announcing
new steps to take that progress even further,” said Mayor Bill de
Blasio. “We cannot attempt to address this issue in a vacuum. It’s time
we all wear one uniform. Outreach NYC is our all-hands-on-deck approach
to bring even more people in off the streets.”
The city is also in the process of hiring 180 more outreach workers,
which will increase the number of outreach workers to more than 550 --
triple the number of staff that conducted outreach at the start of the
de Blasio administration.
Outreach staff canvass the city’s streets daily and have regular contact
with homeless New Yorkers and encourage them to accept services and get
off the streets.
