Mrs. Sisson is the founder of the non-profit, the Street Team Movement, (streetmovement.org), which provides hygiene services and remedial aid to the homeless in Downtown Orlando. Before starting it, she spent a month living on the streets to find out the true needs of the homeless. She came away from the experience realizing that one simple thing most homeless people craved was dignity. She recognized that it’s hard to feel like you have dignity when you have nowhere to wash your clothes or yourself.
To date, Street Team Movement has helped over thousands of people wash over 42,000 loads of clothes and passed out over 50,000 hygiene items. They have been recognized by over seventeen media outlets - NPR, the Steve Harvey Show, The Atlantic Magazine, Orlando Sentinel, Orlando Weekly, News 6, Channel 9, Central Florida Lifestyle, Orlando Magazine, Orlando Waterhole Podcast, Caribbean American Radio, Atlanta Morning Inspiration, and WMFE, to name a few.
