Each week, we help over 70 people eliminate the barriers that keep them from jobs and housing.
Downtown Streets Team has not stopped supporting our Team Members through this crisis. The Covid-19 Shelter in Place orders have had a profound impact on our Team Members and we have seen the greatest needs at this time. The effects of the Shelter in Place on people experiencing homelessness will remain to be seen for months to come and Downtown Streets Team stands ready to help our Team Members heal.Thank you for your support during this time - we have been able to navigate rough waters as a result of your support. Your donations have allowed us to continue to provide basic needs stipends and have also allowed us to stay in touch with our Team Members through regular phone calls. Many of our Team Members have found jobs and moved into housing despite current circumstances.
As we start to come out of Shelter in Place we see just how important our work is. Team Members are eager to be a part of the community once again and happy to be back with their Teams. Downtown Streets Team is taking a phased approach to relaunch and is implementing the most stringent protocols for social distancing, sanitation, and safety.It’s been a long three months for all of us - but the isolation for people experiencing homelessness isn’t ending. We hope that if you see us in the community in our yellow shirts that you’ll say hi. Recognition of their work is so meaningful to our Team Members and keeps us all connected.
