About

Each month we gather as a community of 30-60 passionate and dedicated "Street Samaritans" to go out and aid the homeless. We strive to understand how homelessness affects the very people we want to help to shape the direction of our drives. Each street team is tasked with collecting data ranging from names, to reasons for homelessness, to frequented locations by the homeless, to what currently are the most pressing needs to be fulfilled. Only then can we execute our mission of assembling care packages customized to the season and the people we serve, so that those we help benefit as much as possible. Additionally, we can use our collected data to pinpoint areas to serve in future drives and programs to develop as well. In regards to donations, during our drives we provide nutritious food, toiletries, clothing, emergency shelter means, etc., and we also do one other thing - we establish connections with the homeless community so they feel accepted and inspired to seek help and rise above their current situations.
