Earlier this week, the Santa Clara County Realtors Foundation (SCCRF) surprised all of us at Downtown Streets Team (DST) when they presented a $25,000 check at an evening event hosted by Santa Clara County Association of Realtors.
“Myself and Annette Hancock, an extraordinary volunteer and long-time board member, were overwhelmed by the foundation’s generosity, and Annette was brought to tears, ” said Meta Townsley, Chief Development Officer of DST. “We are greatly appreciative of our new partnership with the Santa Clara Association of Realtors.”
By working hand-in-hand with housing organizations and property managers, we have successfully secured permanent housing for over 600 people across the Bay Area. Building these partnerships is essential to our success in ending homelessness in our lifetime. The SCCRF’s commitment to helping us reach our goal is significant and will bring hope to many people who are ready to get off the streets for good.
SCCRF is dedicated to bringing real estate together by investing in our neighborhoods with compassion, foresight and action. DST’s check was one of two checks presented that evening. Family Supportive Housing, a nonprofit dedicated to ending family homelessness, was also presented with a $25,000 check.
