Emergency outreach workers

Let’s fund positions for neighborhood outreach workers. This summer for a while there was a woman sleeping next to the Park Slope library. She obviously needed help. But I didn’t want to call the police, because she wasn’t committing a crime, and they’re not equipped to help. It would be great if there was someone who would respond to people in crisis instead of the cops.
