Van Patrol Outreach Program
Main Street Project’s Van Patrol is a mobile community outreach program that offers support to community members using a harm reduction approach. Van Patrol provides support such as a ride to MSP’s emergency shelter warm clothing, blankets, water, coffee, food and harm reduction supplies.
The van can also be called on to do wellbeing checks. If you come across a person needing assistance, you can contact our van outreach at 204-232-5217. Download this Resident’s Guide to help determine the best course of action.
During an average day, Van Patrol serves almost 100 people, providing over 150 food and beverage items, and over 80 harm reduction supplies per day. MSP has the only Van Patrol program that is in operation 365 days a year.
In addition to community outreach, Main Street Project is a principal partner in the City of Winnipeg’s Voluntary Transport Protocol. In partnership with the Winnipeg Police Service and Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service, MSP’s Van Patrol helps to alleviate stressors on the health and emergency response system by providing a consistent mode of non-emergency related transportation to assist those who may have otherwise depended on emergency services.
