Downtown Streets Team provides low-income and homeless men and women through a transitional program into housing and employment. Participants start out by volunteering on DST beautification projects. Team Members are held accountable and trusted to complete tasks, show up on time, and work well with others. Those who show dedication and leadership skills have the ability to rise up to become Team Leads, ultimately advancing to become Managers where they can supervise others. Each person receives a non-cash stipend to finance basic needs in addition to support services.
