Downtown Streets Team Redwood City

  • 1 person is interested

Downtown Streets Team Redwood City is celebrating one year of ending homelessness through the dignity of work. We will be holding a small, socially distanced ceremony to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of our Team Members who are either experiencing or at risk for homelessness. Volunteers will assist with setting up the event, ensuring that event attendees are COVID compliant, passing out gift bags, distributing food, and any other need that arises. Spanish-speaking bilingual volunteers are greatly appreciated!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is mandatory that volunteers wear a mask and maintain social distancing for the duration of the event.

Mission Statement

Downtown Streets Team's mission is to end homelessness through the dignity of work. Our Teams restore dignity, hope, and purpose to the lives of folks who are experiencing or at risk for homelessness while challenging perceptions of homelessness in their community. Team Members volunteer their time to help beautify their community, and in exchange for their work they receive employment specialist and case management services to help them meet their goals, as well as a non-cash stipend to help them cover basic needs as they get back on their feet. We believe that the dignity our Teams provide is a powerful tool to motivate Team Members to be a part of their own solution. In the words of one of our Team Members, DST is a win-win-win situation: it's a win for the Team Member, a win for the community, and a win for the environment. Come join us in breaking down barriers and ending homelessness one day at a time!
