Why is Street to Street Necessary?
While the poverty level country-wide is 16 percent, it is three to four times higher than that in parts of our cities. The lack of jobs, education and affordable housing has kept generations of families in a cycle of hopelessness. Street To Street directly addresses these problems by creating work for the unemployed, education and training for drop outs and housing consultation for the homeless. Our Board members, volunteers and team leaders work directly with the target population, offering a hand up, not a hand out. The impact of our positive approach is immediate and can last a lifetime.
Street To Street is necessary because we generate a cycle of hope, beginning where it counts most: one person, one family, one street at a time.
The Street to Street directors, advisors, and mentors are a diverse group. They include business leaders, activists, lawyers, doctors, economists, educators, health care professionals, and concerned citizens who are working together to reduce poverty.
