In Harm’s Way
“Friends are the family you choose." Jess C. Scott
A Weekly Column from the Executive Director of Dorothy’s Place
by Jill Allen
I am asked why we at Dorothy’s Place continue to work in the largest encampment in the County when it’s often dangerous. Those that support our efforts read about criminal or tragic happenings here and worry about us. Sometimes we’ll see a person, a potential donor perhaps, drive up to Dorothy’s Place, park across the street, look around, and immediately pull out and leave, too cautious to get out of their car. The public often gets an incomplete impression of our Chinatown area in Salinas.
