existed, there have been changes in the way the
public views Outreach and in the way Outreachers
view themselves, Grant said.
Calls "have moved to more emotional and
relationship type cf problems," and away from the

in 1971, according to Chuck. The staff has "more
people knowing what they're doing, who are able to
communicate with each other."
