Today we speak with Brooke Newman of Downtown Streets Team Santa Cruz.
DTS is a volunteer work-experience program. In exchange for beautifying your community, participants receive gift cards to help with basic needs and access to employment and case management services that support in achieving individual goals. Five days a week you will find part of the Team working to keep the streets of downtown clean and debris free, while performing peer to peer outreach to men and women experiencing homelessness in this area. Don’t forget to say hi when you see them at work.
