Downtown Streets Team is ending homelessness by restoring the dignity and rebuilding the lives of unhoused men and women.


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 seven Bay Area communities: Hayward, Novato, Palo Alto, San Francisco, San Jose, San Rafael and Sunnyvale, with more on the way. We now serve over 750 unhoused men and women a year with almost 50 staff members and growing. Our goal is to end homelessness in our lifetime: one community at a time.
Our Values
  • People are our biggest asset 
  • B.A.M.N! (by any means necessary!) 
  • Don't make an appointment for something you can do now 
  • Every success is a celebration 
  • Fail fast and often 
  • Challenge complacency 
  • Everyone is a utility player 
  • Value passion over paper 
  • Personalize, don't generalize 
  • Keep your eye on the prize (play chess, not checkers) 
  • Culture is a shared responsibility 
  • Promise effort, not results 
  • Personal development never ends 
  • Team Member is a proper noun 
  • Share the solution, not the problem 
  • It always seems impossible until it's done 
  • Teamwork makes the dream work

Downtown Streets Team (DST) is ending homelessness through the dignity of work. DST's reach expands every day, in part, thanks to endless creativity of it's employees.In his former role as Employment Specialist, Kyle regularly helped place 30+ individuals into employment per year, with over 90% remaining employed (the national average for the same demographic is %14). Those numbers are a testament to the effectiveness of DST's model. Kyle also co-organized a Hack-a-thon called "Called Hack Homelessness" which took place at the Tech Museum in San Jose. See embedded link: http://blog.angelhack.com/2016/10/17/hacking-for-good-tech-museum. Kyle has a passion for teaching individuals valuable skillsets and has spent much of his time developing and leading training training seminars for Team Members and community members. Currently, Kyle is working on launching an Advisory Council to assist with engaging the community and bringing in different perspectives. The Palo Alto Streets Team is also launching a Youth Advisory Council to provide volunteer opportunities for youth and give them a voice in social justice. Kyle sits on the Board of the Palo Alto Business and Professional Association and is an active Chamber Ambassador.
