HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Securing a job is at the top of the list for many of our Team Members, and when they do it’s a huge milestone. Help them kick off their newest journey with one of these “starter kits.”

DESCRIPTION

Downtown Streets Team is ending homelessness by restoring the dignity and rebuilding the lives of unhoused men and women.

Founded in 2005, Downtown Streets Team is now beautifying thirteen Bay Area communities: Palo Alto, San Jose, Sunnyvale, San Rafael, Novato, Hayward, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Sacramento, West Sacramento, Oakland, Berkeley, and Modesto, with more on the way.

We now serve over 750 unhoused men and women a year with almost 50 staff members and growing. Our goal is to end homelessness in our lifetime: one community at a time.

As our Clients, AKA Team Members, are placed with employment and in their new home, we invite you to create Move-In and Employment Kits!
