Microenterprise

Peter Maurin Screen Printers

Our goal is to create sustainable work and revenue opportunities for guests of Dorothy's Place who are ready for a "next step" after volunteering. Our emphasis is building self-esteem and confidence and creating a work environment without overwhelming stress. Still, we are a business in a competitive environment and we work together to meet our customers' expectations.

Peter Maurin Screen Printers is currently in hiatus, awaiting volunteers and business developers to assist us in making this social enterprise a viable, sustainable business.

Soledad St Marketplace: @risK Artisan Gallery & La Perla Books & Coffee

One of the most interesting places on Soledad Street is our @risK Gallery, which functions as a studio space and exhibition room, hosting various projects such as the Breakthrough H'Art's mosaic project. Inside @risK is La Perla Books and Coffee, a combination reading and meeting room as well as a coffee, tea and snack bar.

Red Artichoke Culinary School & Catering

Many of our homeless guests at Dorothy's Place face huge barriers to employment.  We have a future goal of using our commercial kitchen to create employment opportunities and income for our guests. The objective of Red Artichoke would be three-fold:

  • Overcome barriers to food service employment
  • Fill an existing need in our local community
  • Create an earned income stream for Dorothy's Kitchen
