Downtown Streets Team
We’re here to work together towards ending homelessness. But when facing such a deeply-embedded societal problem, knowing the first step can be difficult. However, in consultations with our homeless folks, they've let us know the first step can be simple acknowledgment. We can start by trying to eliminate the social hesitation around acknowledging homeless people.
This is why we are inviting everyone to come say hi to our Team Members, folks who are volunteering to clean up our San Francisco community, as they collaborate with our Staff to find employment, housing and an end to homelessness as the status quo.
Until the community understands who these people are, they won’t know how to help. In our experience, people do want to help, but don’t know how. The first step is to just say hi!
