About the Company

DST provides a transitional employment pathway to help those who are unhoused get back to work. We do this through creating strong trusting relationships with our clients who we call “Team Members,” who work on volunteer community clean-up crews to get out of survival mode and into goal-setting mode. We measure our impact in ‘barrier’ reduction – anything that gets in the way of them becoming self-sufficient.
