Howard Center Community Outreach Team

The Winooski Police Department is a proud member of this program, working with regional partners to serve individuals who have mental health, substance use, homelessness, and unmet social service needs. The Howard Center Community Outreach Program in the communities of South Burlington, Colchester, Williston, Winooski, Essex, Richmond and Shelburne was inspired by Burlington’s Street Outreach model. In these participating towns, Outreach Specialists work in partnership with local and regional law enforcement to respond to individuals with unmet social service needs, often due to mental health or substance use issues.
