If you want to use your organizational and leadership skills in a role that truly benefits the lives of individuals in this time of unprecedented need, we want you to join us! You will have the opportunity to direct and develop a video tour of our facilities. As a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis, we are unable to give regular tours to interested donors and volunteers. With this video (and your help), we will be able to showcase our day to day operations once more. We are passionate about providing programs and services that benefit our community, and we are seeking an experienced videographer who is a visual storyteller, a person who can find the elements of our cause and express it in a captivating way.

About Dorothy Day House of Berkeley
1931 Center Street, PO Box 12701, Berkeley, CA 94712, US
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.
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.
