We are a volunteer-based outreach ministry that hits the streets four times a month to reach out to the estimated 6,000 homeless young people sleeping on the streets of San Diego each night.  We pass out supplies, a warm meal, and distribute resources on shelters, youth services, medical care, and job opportunities. 


We also hand out compassion and lend a listening ear. Come be a part of this movement of grace.

We have two special Thanksgiving outings this week.  Our Tuesday, November 22 outing will meet at 6:00 PM as usual at the church, but a group of folks preparing the food will arrive as early as 5:00.  We have turkey, stuffing, and the works planned for both outings.


Our Saturday, November 26 outing will also meet a little earlier than the usual 11:00 AM so that we can get the food ready.  Come be a part of these special meals of thanks.


Why not also clean out your closet of those sweaters and hoodies that don’t fit any more and bring them along to help our angels as the San Diego nights get colder.

Street Angels is teaming up with the Downtown Fellowship of churches to put together HAT Teams (Homeless Assistance Teams). These teams of 4-6 people will join with homeless individuals to stay with them as they transition off the streets into housing, and find employment, counseling, or any other needs to get them into a new life.  Contact darin@streetangelsministry.com for more information on the November 19 training session.

Street Angels now has a van!  We can’t say thanks enough to Harold and Penny Dokmo for donating the new Street Angels van.  Having a van that can now accommodate two of our large wagons, as well as our volunteers allows Street Angels to dramatically increase the impact of each outing.  Not only can we bring more supplies with us, but we can cover more territory.  Donations like this are how we propel our mission forward and affect more lives.  Thanks Dokmo family!

Street Angels is delighted to announce that Animal House Pet Store San Diego and By Nature pet foods have teamed up to make sure that the homeless dogs we encounter on our outings always have a meal, too.  Their generous ongoing donation of natural organic dog food means the loyal companions to our angels on the streets will feel the love, too.  Many thanks to these wonderful sponsors! Animal House Pet Store has been sharing the love of pets in North Park for 30 years, and we are simply delighted they are a part of Street Angels.

Dog Lovers! Join us on our OB outing on July 9 where we will have a veterinarian joining us afterwards to give check-ups and vaccines to pets.  Many of the people we see on the streets have canine companions.  In addition to the normal meal, supplies, and resources on Saturday, our vet will be giving some special attention to these pets as well.  Come join us and bring along some dog food to help in the cause!  We meet at 11 am at 3090 Polk to pack up supplies and then carpool down to the beach.

Best of luck to the two teenagers we met yesterday at Ocean Beach and sent back home on a bus to New York. When we find young homeless people sleeping on the concrete in San Diego who have a family back home just waiting to give them a bed to sleep in and a roof over their heads, we are so pleased to be able to get them back home. Check out our How You Can Help page to find out what you can do to help change young people's lives for the better.

Come join us on our next outreach outing at Ocean Beach on Saturday, June 25.  We will meet at the church at 3090 Polk St at 11:00 am and spend twenty minutes packing the wagon before we head out to the beach to share some love, a fantastic meal, some supplies, and resources? Can’t make it to the outing? Don’t worry, check out our How You Can Help page to see how else you can support Street Angels.

Wheelchairs for the homeless.  The Street Angels volunteers often run into folks on the street confined to wheelchairs.  Most that we see are in poor condition, including broken or missing parts.  If we had two of three new or gently used quality wheelchairs on hand, it would allow us to give them out as needed (we may not get a second chance to go find someone later if we don’t have one ready).  If you can help us out, please email info@streetangelsministry.com

Street Angels is looking for healthcare professionals interested in volunteering with our outreach events.  We’re so pleased to have EMT services available now and we’re looking to expand the reach of our healing mission.  We’re in need of doctors, nurses, EMTs, psychologists, counselors, physicians assistants, and any other healthcare professionals who can help us reach out to those in need.  If you are interested, please email info@streetangelsministry.com

Thanks goes out to regular Street Angels supporter Pat Schwieder of Missouri who donated another round of many dozens of pairs of socks this month.  Socks are our number one requested item.  Imagine going on an outing after a long rain and being able to give new dry socks to someone who has been walking around with cold, wet feet.  Thanks Pat for helping us give comfort to those in need!

A very special thanks to veteran Street Angels volunteer Bryan Smith who ran a donation drive with his colleagues at Kaiser.  In addition to a generous supply of clothes, toiletries and bags, Bryan’s drive also brought us some much-needed refills for our First Aid kit.  Thanks Bryan!

Another fantastic outing today at Ocean Beach.  Thanks to Ian and Michael for making 40 amazing chicken, rice, and sweet potato meals.  Their delicious cookies were a big hit as well.  40 people were fed thanks to your generosity!  We had 14 amazing volunteers help us today, including Mabek, our wonderful new volunteer who ran into us last month in OB and decided she wanted to help. We continued our first aid outreach today as well, rounding out a very successful outing. Great job to you all!

Thanks to everyone who helped make our fundraiser a success.  Special thanks to artist Norma Brinker and gallery owner Esther Beish at Main Street 5 Gallery at 124 E. Main St. in El Cajon.  A portion of the proceeds from the sales from the exhibit will go directly to funding the very necessary work that we do at Street Angels.  In addition to great art, the event had raffles every half hour, and live music by Eric Brinker, Ed Balduzzi, Tiffy Jane, and Alex Roller.

What a fantastic outing today in Ocean Beach!  We had four new wonderful volunteers attend, including Paloma, a new volunteer who is also an EMT.  In addition to feeding 30 people and giving supplies to about 35, we tended to some serious (and not so serious) first aid needs.  How amazing to be able to feed, clothe, give necessities, AND offer healing to folks in need.  Way to go volunteers!

Street Angels had a very special outing at Ocean Beach for Christmas day. In addition to our normal outing tradition of bringing supplies and a meal, we distributed wrapped packages of necessities like blankets, sleeping bags, hooded sweatshirts and socks.  We consider the Street Angels to be part of our family, so we were pleased to be able to spend the holiday with our extended family opening Christmas gifts like many families do.

November 23, 2010

We prepared a traditional Thanksgiving dinner complete with turkey, dressing, potatoes, and bread to share with the Street Angels on our downtown outing.  For folks living on the streets, the idea of the traditional Thanksgiving celebration seated with your friends and family and a hot, home-cooked meal doesn’t exist.  We felt privileged to be able to share this sit-down meal with about 3 dozen of our friends on the street, even if it meant sitting on the steps of the post office.
