Success Stories

Jason

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

Anna

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

Anthony

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.

Shay

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

River

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
