Street Outreach

Drumm Farm provides trauma-informed, culturally competent support services to youth and young adults struggling with maintaining stable housing across eastern Jackson County. Drumm employs a case worker and therapist who will provide outreach in local schools, community agencies, libraries, and other community locations to conveniently offer youth an array of services and resources that will provide them with a path to securing basic needs, gaining housing stability, achieving educational and employment success, and preparing to transition to healthy, sustainable adulthood. Drumm is working in partnership with Synergy Services and reStart,Inc. to ensure youth across Jackson County have access to these services.
