Eileen Richardson, Founder and CEO of Downtown Streets Team, an innovative approach to ending homelessness, will speak about the program today (April 10) at 12 noon at the Clinton School.
Downtown Streets Team is ending homelessness by restoring the dignity and rebuilding the lives of unhoused men and women. Founded in 2005, Downtown Streets Team is now beautifying thirteen Bay Area communities: Palo Alto, San Jose, Sunnyvale, San Rafael, Novato, Hayward, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Sacramento, West Sacramento, Oakland, Berkeley, and Modesto, with more on the way.
It serves over 750 unhoused men and women a year with almost 50 staff members and growing. The goal is to end homelessness in our lifetime, one community at a time.
Eileen has been building and refining a non-conforming solution to homelessness, called Downtown Streets Team for close to 15 years. She has relentlessly pursued her vision to build positive communities which include and empower unhoused people throughout Northern California.
