At Dorothy Day House, we recognize that homelessness comes in many forms. We pride ourselves in living our lives and doing our work in the “Dorothy Day Way.” That means we strive to show both radical love and warmth to people that come to us for help – including meeting people where they are currently in their lives. We then focus on finding solutions to improve their circumstances immediately and provide our guests with the tools to advance their lives toward self-sufficiency.
