Provide a meal for folks experiencing homelessness

Downtown Streets Team Redwood City

  • 3 people are interested

At Downtown Streets Team, we provide work experience for folks who are experiencing or at risk for homelessness. Our Team Members volunteer to beautify their community in exchange for basic needs stipends, case management and employment support to help them reach their goals.

Every week, our Team gathers for a meeting after their shift. Since many of our Team Members don't always have consistent access to good, warm meals, we try to provide a meal every week at these meetings.

We are hoping to have more members of the community get involved with Downtown Streets Team by providing these meals. If you are interested, please email sarah@streetsteam.org to coordinate food delivery. Be sure to bring enough food for 25 individuals. Because of COVID, we ask that these meals be individually portioned before you come. Please bring the food to the Redwood City Public Library at 11:45am on the day that you choose to provide meals.

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!
