Dorothy Day House



Dorothy Day House provides transitional housing for homeless families in Memphis, TN. Working with other local agencies, staff members and volunteers, we work to provide families in need with a safe environment and the means to re-establish their independence.

We use the Volunteer Compass website to help volunteers sign up for our weekly reoccurring events, Sunday Prayer and Dessert and Monday Night Meals which happen each week at each of our houses. 

Interested in other volunteer opportunities with us? Fill out our volunteer application on our website using the link below and we'll enter you into our volunteer database and contact you when opportunities arise that match your selected interests. If you can't make it, no big deal! We'll leave you on our list and ask the next time. 

Note: Childcare volunteers requirethe completion of our Child Safe Policy and training before they are able to volunteer with our families.
