“Downtown Streets Team is a best practice” - Supervisor Nate Miley, Alameda County

In 2016, we launched our first East Bay Team in Hayward, "The Heart of the Bay." The City of Hayward has welcomed us with open arms as an innovative solution to people get off the streets, while addressing the needs of a strong business community. We will be beautifying the revitalized downtown core in and around B Street, with Team Members contributing positively to the community as a whole, while working toward individual goals.
