TAKING SAN RAFAEL BY STORM
Our San Rafael Team launched in September 2013, and by November, the team had exceeded or nearly met all of its goals set with the city to be accomplished in one-year’s time. Talk about success! Currently over 1/3 of the homeless population in San Rafael, as determined by the last Point-in-Time Count, has attended one of the Team’s Weekly Success Team Meetings.
STREETS TEAM TOGETHER WITH LOCAL BUSINESS OWNERS
On average, the San Rafael Team volunteers 400 hours per week, Monday-Friday, working in one of four distinct work zones covering everything from the Transit Center to the library.
Not only are Team Members picking up trash and beautifying downtown San Rafael, our Team Leads engage with the business community on a daily basis. By checking in with local merchants, our Team Members are able to attend to specific clean-up concerns, perform outreach to prospective Team Members, and discourage loitering, panhandling, and disorderly conduct. In addition to regular work crews, three Elite Team Members help with outreach, tool inventory, and terracycling the cigarette butts collected (learn more about this project).
