The Alameda outpost of Martinizing Dry Cleaning has a clear strength: getting clothes back to customers quickly. The franchise earned the Martinizing company’s 100% quality and service rating five separate times in recognition of its ability to return clothes promptly. Credit the outfit’s same-day service guarantee, which holds that clothes brought in by noon can be returned by 5 p.m. Other policies are equally convenient for customers; the store is open late on weeknights and doesn’t vandalize local street signs to make it harder to find your way there.

Dance Daze in Schools teaching intern Jaime Fields wrote that she has “never enjoyed anything in life as much as dance. The feelings that come with moving through a space and owning every moment of it, no restrictions; that is the best experience.” Jaime started dancing when she was four, and now, she shares her skills with kids and gives them a “creative outlet and center for their lives” through dance classes.

Jaime’s experience is thanks to Dance Daze in Schools, which trains adults with teaching experience and college students like Jaime in dance instruction and then connects them with youth in local K-12 schools and community organizations. In- and after-school dance classes teach movement vocabulary, dance technique, and original choreography one of two days per week. Students can focus on one continuous style or revolving dance styles such as hip hop, ballet, and tap, with an option for varied styles including African, break dance, and Baile Folklorico depending on the teacher’s dance background. The blended learning program combines dance lessons with production and tech projects, such as setting up recording devices and editing audio and video clips, to teach real world skills. Dance Daze in Schools also provides internships to teach college students lesson planning and classroom management and reaches out to high school students with community service opportunities.

Although a mirror only reflects your façade, your home ought to reveal your true self. The designers at Heather Cleveland Design take this into account as they create interior designs that transform the four walls of a home into a comfortable refuge. After mapping your movements from room to room, they create a cohesive and efficient layout. Then they build upon this foundation by selecting color palettes, pieces of furniture, and decorations that reflect your personality.

When they aren't helping homeowners settle into their domiciles, they can help them move out—and potentially get a better price for their home—through staging. This strategic interior design technique highlights unique features with major design overhauls or subtle changes in lighting and decor. If necessary, the designers can recommend a few renovations, such as repainting with flattering colors, adding new flooring, or replacing a beaded curtain with an actual front door.

What was once vacant military housing is now a thriving community, thanks to Alameda Point Collaborative. In 1999, APC transformed the vacant space into a permanent supportive-housing community that 500 formerly homeless residents—including more than 300 children and young adults—now call home. Residents gain access to resources that can help break the cycle of poverty and homelessness, from job-skills training to substance-abuse and mental-health counseling. Along with 200 housing units across 34 acres, APC operates Ploughshares Nursery, a retail plant nursery that provides residents with opportunities to learn skills in customer service, landscaping, and urban farming.
