About Urban Street Angels

urbanstreetangels.org

Urban Street Angels is a volunteer-based non-profit organization based in the San Diego, California area. The organization’s primary operations involve engaging in community outreach 3 – 4 times each month with the 3,000 + young homeless people sleeping on the streets of the community every night. Its teams of volunteers distribute meals and bottles of water during each event, as well as socks and dry goods, backpacks, sleeping bags and hygiene kits during seasonal events. The organization also regularly distributes resources and critical information related to medical care, transitional employment and housing opportunities, and other available social services. And in 2015, Urban Street Angels has launched an exciting transitional employment and housing program that will provide jobs and a safe living environment for homeless youth who are ready to transition off the streets.

Adventure has been a part of Brody his whole life and he has let his passion for adventure determine his career path. Brody is a certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise and has worked and trained with some of the top watermen in the world like Dave Kalama.

Once Brody stood atop a paddleboard and experienced the serenity, excitement, challenge, and all around good time that stand up paddling gives its participants, he knew that he wanted to bring this experience to others.
