About Dorothy’s Place

For more than 3 decades, Dorothy’s Place, operated by the Franciscan Workers of Junipero Serra, has been dedicated to serving people who experience homelessness, poverty, and marginalization in Monterey County. We have continued to expand our understanding of chronic homelessness with the desire to create a trauma-informed safety net and springboard for health and self-sufficiency.

In Harms Way

Good news, we’re slowly but surely making progress on this front through our House of Peace Transitional Living Program. We assisted three transitional housing residents who moved into permanent housing in March and April. Our Roman Perez, who is the head of both the program’s Soledad and Jefferson street locations, recently visited Maria Concepcion Mendez, a program graduate. Perez met her at her new studio apartment to check in on how she is doing off the streets and in a secure home.
