STREATS advocates and educates society at large on homelessness and what can be done to eradicate it through media, online and through various outlets. STREATS has reached a point of success in which its formerly homeless participants are now helping others move away from homelessness as case managers, group facilitators, counselors, literacy tutors, drivers and general assistants.
