Community Spotlight: food-recipientsDowntown Streets Team
This ambitious project, which won the Heart Of Marin Award this year for Excellence in Innovation, seeks to end the cycle of homelessness through the dignity of work. Team members begin by rebuilding their lives through working on beautification projects. The ultimate goal is to transition these team members into employment because having a job restores hope and opens the door to other opportunities. A key part of their model is educating people and dispelling stereotypes about homelessness. You can often catch a glimpse of team members on the streets in downtown San Rafael, at work in their brightly colored team t-shirts. We’re proud to support them with deliveries of healthy, fresh food!
