Celebrating 10 Years

May 2016 marks ten years since we accepted our first family into the Dorothy Day House. Since then, we have accepted forty-two additional families and have seen our ministry grow by leaps and bounds.

In 2015 our donor base included 894 monetary donors, 1,100 in-kind donors and 434 volunteers. Together, all of these people are making a difference!

Our Ministry Team, Board of Directors and Staff are all committed to our service to homeless families. We know that we are filling a unique need in Memphis and we know there are thousands of people in our city and surrounding area who care about homeless families and want to participate in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of countless families.

As we celebrate ten years, we also rejoice in the upcoming expansion of our ministry. Since 2006, we have been located in a single house which could house three families at a time. Starting in 2017, we will be gradually expanding to four houses which will accommodate a total of 10-12 families at a time. We hope you will be a part of our growth through investing your time, talent and treasure in the Dorothy Day House.
