FAQ’s

How can I get added to your mailing list?

We periodically send out news updates about upcoming events.   To be added to our email distribution list, send an email to webmaster@dorothydaydanbury.org

What is the best time to drop off donations?

The best time is early afternoon – from 1:00 to 2:30pm when the kitchen crew is preparing the afternoon meal.   Late afternoon between 4pm and 5pm is also good.  If you want to drop off things at other times, please call ahead

I'm volunteering at Dorothy Day House.  Where can I park?  

We now have a small (3 car) lot at 8 Spring Street (on the other side of Spring Street towards downtown Danbury).   Otherwise, you can park is in the lot at St Paul's Church at the end of Spring St.   Please do not park in front of the soup kitchen if you are staying more than 15 minutes -- the signs say 15 minute parking and you may be ticketed!!


I have to do community service.  Can I do it at Dorothy Day?

For men, the best option is at the shelter.   See Shelter volunteers for more information.


I have some leftover food from a party.  Can you use it at Dorothy Day House?

Yes, we can put it to good use


Do you take clothing or furniture donations?

Dorothy Day House has very limited storage space, so we are unable to collect and distribute most clothing or furniture.   However, we will accept new socks and underwear, and hats, warm gloves, unisex ski jackets and scarves during the winter months.

Who can stay at the shelter?

Men and women 18 and older are welcome at the shelter – no identification is required.   Children under 18 are not permitted.    During the summer months, guests may stay no more than 30 days (counted from January 1st of the year).   The shelter admits guests from 9 to 9:30pm each night.
