About Us

What we would like to do is change the world — make it a little simpler for people to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves as God intended them to do.


Our organization has a 35 year history of serving the hungry and homeless. The basic model can be attributed to Dorothy Day, a social activist in the early 1900s. She spoke out against war and human rights violations, peacefully picketing on behalf of the poor.

Food Pantry

Since the Dorothy Day House of Hospitality opened its doors in 1983, hungry people have come to the house for meals and food. Because of the residential location of the house and number of people being served, a separate operation was needed for the food pantry.
