Street Team Movement’s Remedial Aid program is called (Re): Mediate. Remedial Aid is crucial to those living on the streets. Chapstick to protect our lips in the windy winter. Sunscreen to protect your skin against the fiery Florida sun. New shoes to keep your feet from blistering as you walk for miles and miles every day. Our goal is to remediate the individuals who do not have access to items such as these. For example, some of these homeless individuals have jobs, yet a stumbling block is not being able to afford uniform essentials for the new position which they have acquired. (Re): Mediate will allow our clients to regain a sense of worth in a society that has overlooked their smallest needs.
We pass out remedial aid 5 days a week. Three times a month are with our Partner Organizations at food shares.
