The mission of the The Delores Project is to provide safe, comfortable overnight shelter and services to unaccompanied adult women who are homeless and have limited resources. The model of service is one of hospitality, respect, and regard for the dignity of each guest.
Every night The Delores Project ensures that at least 50 women are safely off the streets — women who might otherwise face the risk of physical danger and illness that comes with living on the streets. By providing transitional support services in addition to emergency shelter, The Delores Project assists women in developing the skills and resources necessary to stay off the streets and move towards stability.
MPB parishioners cook meals in their homes to be served at the shelter each Monday and Wednesday evening. Volunteers prepare a dish approximately every 4-8 weeks depending on the number of cooks (either a main dish or salad to serve 15-20). Dishes are brought to the parish office by 3 pm and a volunteer driver takes them to the shelter.
Schedules are made every six months so volunteers can prepare in advance if necessary.
“We are grateful to be able to feed the hungry, rather than being one of the hungry.”
Time commitment: One dish approximately every 4-8 weeks
