Covid-19 Impacts Our Clients and You Can Help

The community we serve at Outside In – older adults, people experiencing homelessness, those who are chronically ill, and people living in poverty – will be among those most impacted by COVID-19. Our dedicated staff has been working tirelessly to implement new clinic and mental health programs, enroll people in health insurance,  deliver meals to young adults, and order additional equipment and supplies to address this crisis in our community 

You can help us continue to provide critical medical and behavioral health services to adults and youth populations, and basic needs to youth experiencing homelessness 

Your support saves lives.

Success Stories


Through Outside In’s guidance and support, I was in my own apartment completely self-sufficient within a week.


If you met me today, you might never imagine I spent countless nights sleeping under the Burnside Bridge.


As a patient at Outside In, the dignity, compassion, and respect that I was shown by staff truly had a lasting impact on me and directly resulted in me wanting to get involved in helping my community.


Outside In made me want to be around excellence. Outside In shaped me. It taught me how to be kind to people less fortunate.


When I came out as trans and reached out to the community for help, everyone had something good to say about Outside In.


Through these connections I was able to get into school and graduate as a Certified Medical Assistant
