Street Beautification Program

The Street Beautification Program is an incentive-based volunteer program for homeless and low-income clients.   Participants are responsible for beautifying and maintaining the under-serviced streets and common areas of San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood.  North Beach Citizens can testify that when our clients work in the community, they take increased personal pride in that community.  This program provides valuable life-skills training for North Beach Citizens’ clients while creating a sense of ownership and satisfaction, not to mention grooming and maintaining high-traffic areas such as Marini Plaza, Joe DiMaggio Playground, Washington  Square Park, and North Beach Branch Public Library.

Over the past year, our 10 program volunteers removed 4,212 bags of debris and waste from the North Beach neighborhood.

 “In its years of operation, the Street Beautification Program has contributed greatly to the cleanliness of our northeast neighborhoods, and, most importantly, has provided a platform for North Beach Citizens’ clients to become engaged, productive members of our community.  This program has significantly benefited all those who live, work, and visit North Beach” – District 3 Supervisor David Chiu, President of the Board of Supervisors
