Our Program:

H.O.T. is comprised of one Sergeant and two Corporals/Officers. H.O.T. focuses on trying to keep homeless out of jail if possible and divert them to services or shelters. We also work to help make homeless successful whether its helping them get back on their medications if they have mental issues, refer to substance abuse centers if needed, assistance in resume building, job referrals and building partnerships with them to get them the resources they need to make them successful. Our program works to help clean the environment as well. H.O.T. currently works with homeless providers, churches, and the various City of Lubbock Departments to help clean up temporary camp/shelter areas while assisting homeless into housing or shelters.

The team helps with:  
Support Services referrals (housing, shelter, food, clothing)
Medical care
Mental health treatment
Social Security cards
Bus fare
Birth certificates

Team Goal:
Our goal is to help the chronic homeless find permanent housing and become self-sustainable.
