“We are helping each other by what we do. Through connecting with the  team  I got housing, I got glasses, I got a job. It works!” - Pamela

Our Oakland Team is back! Launched as a pilot with AC-OCAP funds in October of 2018, the pilot was continued into June 2019 by general funds from The City of Oakland’s District 2.

Thanks to the City of Oakland’s Human Service Department and the support of private donors, we are relaunching the Oakland Team.

Projects:

  • Lake Merritt Beautification

  • East Oakland Beautification (location TBD)

  • Third Location Beautification (TBD)

  • Streets Team Enterprises Coming January, 2021

Staff:


Our team is outreaching to prospective Team Members, creating partnerships with neighborhood businesses and residents, and providing a net of resources and referrals. For more information about the Oakland Team, contact Julia Lang at Julia@streetsteam.org

Downtown Streets Team is a volunteer work-experience program for people affected by homelessness. In exchange for beautifying the community, Team Members receive case management and employment services support as well as a basic needs stipend. At DST, Team Members move out of survival mode and into achieving their goals.
