I would try to bring her over to your house, but not directly outside.
Do you have a small room @ your house you can use for a few weeks? If
so, you should keep her in there - with litter, food & water & a place
to hide (large box with hole in it & some towels will do just fine)
while you get her accustomed to you as her new care giver. Go in
there everyday to be with her - even if you don't touch her. Stay in
there for at least a half-hour & read something out loud (normal
voice) so she can get used to hearing you.
If you decide to name her - use her name over & over when you go in to
feed her. Praise her for being a smart & strong kitty. etc.
Then after a few weeks, leave her in the room, but with a screened
window cracked open a bit, so she can get used to the new neighborhood
"smells" from inside. That way, when you do finally let her out (&
put her box outside too) she will already be familiar with the
surroundings & won't be so apt to bolt or run off.
Good luck! It will be worth the time & the effort!!!
