Mission Statement

"To live, to love, to work together in harmony, to serve the marginalized, to create partnerships that are mutually liberating, and to pursue social justice with respect and dignity for all, in the spirit of St. Francis and Dorothy Day."

Description

Dorothy's Place is a House of Hospitality for the poor, homeless, and marginalized living in Salinas and the Monterey county. We seek to welcome those who come through our doors, to show everyone dignity, to give people access to basic human services (such as hygiene supplies, showers, laundry, clothing, etc). Beyond that, we serve hot meals every day, feeding about 150 people per meal. We also have a woman's emergency shelter, that serve 16-35 women a night, permanent supportive housing for some people who have struggled with chronic homelessness, art gallery where people may make arts and crafts to sell, and more.

The Companions of the Way community serve as the primary staff for the many of the projects at Dorothy's Place. Social justice and "mindfulness practice" are our special focus.
