Homeless Outreach Support Transition Program (HOST), a regional nonprofit program that employs formerly homeless individuals as outreach specialists, has run out of funding.
According to WHYY Newsworks, the program is still operating on a federal grant it received from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in 2015. HOST will shutter this month.
