30 Years of Street Outreach

Michael Diehl has been part of the East Bay organizing scene for nearly thirty years. After decades of talking to people on the streets and working hard to spread the word about injustices and get homeless people involved in solutions, he is one of most trusted and respected organizers in the community.

Recently BOSS received funding from the City of Berkeley to expand our street outreach work on the streets of Berkeley and Albany. Much of what we have learned from Michael over the years is being applied in this effort, as well as from the experiences of BOSS’s Benefits and Entitlements Specialist Team (BEST), which engages with eligible people on the streets to help them apply for SSI and access needed services.

Thank you, Michael, for your true dedication to some of the most vulnerable people in our community. We are honored to work with you.
