About Dorothy Day House of Berkeley

Location:

1931 Center Street, PO Box 12701, Berkeley, CA 94712, US

Mission Statement

The Dorothy Day House of Berkeley is a non-denominational community of volunteers who are dedicated to feeding the hungry and providing dignified hospitality to the poor. The name refers to our origins in the Catholic Worker movement; we are not a residential community.

Description

Daily breakfast is served to residents of Berkeley's long-term Men's Shelter and at Trinity Methodist Church (near U.C. campus) to drop-in guests. We also coordinate dinner for the Men's Shelter every evening, and run a foul-weather shelter on rainy nights. We have served free breakfasts in the People's Park neighborhood for more than 20 years. During the struggle to keep the park open we worked out of an illegal trailer -- the People's Cafe -- there. Now the City of Berkeley subsidizes some of our services, though we are completely dependent on volunteer labor and have no office or paid administrative staff.
