Launched at the end of Summer 2018, our Berkeley Team is committed to improving the community and building a better life for themselves.

Through a contract with Berkeley Public Works, our Team Members can currently be found beautifying Downtown Monday-Thursday and the Telegraph District Monday-Wednesday. We look forward to growing and serving South Berkeley, West Berkeley, North Shattuck, Solano, and Elmwood. We hope to be up and running in each jurisdiction by Spring of 2019!

“I’m giving back to the streets because I live on the streets. I’ve been in plenty of programs. In this one, you’re giving something; you’re giving back. It’s a good foundation. It helps you bring up your character, to get grounded. I really want to be in a house; I want to be something stable. Being with this is helping to stabilize my life.” – Terrance Smith, Team Lead
