Community Partners

Downtown Streets Team

Their primary objective is to end homelessness, but the additional benefits include the reactivation of public spaces, increased awareness of homeless and low-income issues and fostering safe places for everyone to live and play. Homeless and unemployed individuals, also known as Team Members, can be spotted wearing red shirts as they beautify streets around Union Square (Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.) through cleaning and safety, as well as safely disposing of hazardous materials, such as discarded needles.
