We are very excited that Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors and the Modesto City Council voted unanimously to adopt our model! Pretty soon you'll see our Team Members beautifying your community while they're rebuilding their lives. This amazing partnership will bring together the collective efforts of the City, County, Stanislaus Community Foundation, and the United Way of Stanislaus County.

We have a lot of work to do before our launch including hiring our local staff, outreaching to the homeless community in Modesto, scoping out our project areas and more, but we are on track!

Want to learn more? Contact Project Manager Greg Pensinger: email, or call/text at (650) 833-8663.

Downtown Streets Team is a volunteer work-experience program. In exchange for beautifying your community, you receive gift cards to help with your basic needs and access to employment and case management services that support you in achieving your goals.
