COALITION OF HOMELESS SERVICES PROVIDERS WELCOMES DOWNTOWN STREETS TEAM AS NEW ASSOCIATE MEMBER

Monterey and San Benito Counties, California (April 2021):  The Coalition of Homeless Services Providers is pleased to announce the appointment of Downtown Streets Team as an Associate Member by unanimous vote of the Board of Directors.

Downtown Streets Team provides homeless and low-income men and women with the resources they need to rebuild their lives. First, they volunteer on one of our teams and begin working collaboratively on beautification projects. Team Members are held accountable and trusted to complete tasks, show up on time, and work well with others. Those who show dedication and leadership skills have the ability to rise up to become Team Leads, then Managers, and supervise others with little or no supervision from staff.

The Coalition of Homeless Services Providers (CHSP) is a group of private nonprofit and public organizations working together to address the complex issue of homelessness.  Our mission is to “eliminate homelessness in Monterey and San Benito Counties by promoting interagency coordination to develop and sustain a comprehensive system of housing and support services designed to maximize the self-sufficiency of individuals and families.”  The programs of CHSP and its member agencies alleviate the human deprivation caused by family and individual homelessness and prevent the continuation of conditions of extreme poverty by breaking the cycle of homelessness.
