Our Mission

AWARENESS AND ASSISTANCE FOR THE HOMELESS IN OUR COMMUNITY

Streets of Paradise is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization co-founded by community organizer Greg Cruz.

We are an outreach and awareness initiative dedicated to providing comfort to the homeless and at-risk communities through no-cost street access to basic necessities of life, and facilitating access to rapid rehousing and other social services through our membership in the Continuum of Care for Sarasota and Manatee counties.
