Six days a week, Dorothy Day House volunteers make and serve a simple, free breakfast to the 45-50 occupants of Berkeley Men's Shelter and 90-140 drop-in guests at Trinity United Methodist Church. On rainy nights, emergency shelter is provided at the Berkeley Emergency Storm Shelter.
We are volunteer-based organization that has provided meals and shelter for homeless and low income residents in Berkeley for over 30 years. We do all this without an office and just three-part time staff members. Funding is provided donations from private individuals, foundations, partnerships with local churches/businesses and from the City of Berkeley.
