Salinas is the Downtown Streets Team 14th community in California and 2nd location in the Central Coast. Our goal is to build community and provide an opportunity for folks experiencing homelessness as they prepare to get back into the workforce. Our dedicated staff works side-by-side with our Team Members, assisting them in achieving all of their goals, including gaining employment and securing a place to call home. Our Team is committed to creating a clean, vibrant, and welcoming Salinas, while building a better life for themselves.

In response to the Monterey County Shelter In Place Order our beautification projects were placed on hold. We are thrilled to begin slowly relaunching as of May 18th! But before we are back in full force we need your help with:

  • Hygiene Kits
  • Disposable Gloves
  • Disposable Mask
  • Disinfectant Wipes
  • Disinfectant Spray
  • Socks

Our goal is always to keep our Team Members and Staff safe and we appreciate all of your support. We are so excited to be back in the community, see you out there soon! Contact:
