Mobile Outreach Services
The Salvation Army Community and Family Services and other community frontline support services have come together to form an innovative new outreach service for vulnerable people in Owen Sound and throughout Grey Bruce.
The Grey Bruce Supportive Outreach Service, called “S.O.S.” is a proactive and accessible partnership of community care providers. Together, social workers and health care workers offer bi-weekly clinics for vulnerable people suffering from mental health and substance use issues. Clinics are offered in downtown Owen Sound at the Farmers Markets bi-weekly, and at Stone Tree Apartments on a monthly basis. Outreach services include food hampers, clothing, personal hygiene items, medical care, peer support, mental health and addiction support, harm reduction education and housing -and shelter system navigation.
The Salvation Army partners with Grey County Paramedic Services, the Canadian Mental Health Association, Grey Bruce Health Services, OSHaRE, Y Housing, the United Way and others to provide S.O.S. services to our community.
