The Dorothy Day House operates two transitional houses where homeless families live while getting back on their feet. Because we serve families in a home setting, we are always in need of basic household items like toilet tissue, Kleenex, paper towels, laundry detergent, dish detergent, cleaning supplies, and garbage bags.
