DAVIS COMMUNITY MEALS
December 2, 2009

Over the last four years I have learned that DCM has 7 programs that benefit the homeless or nearly homeless in Davis. With few paid staff and a tiny budget, this non-profit works to feed people healthy food, make them aware of and teach them how and when to contact the few resources available, house them, shelter them in cold weather, do laundry, counsel, and provide an address, support former foster children as they tackle college -- and always treat people facing incredible challenges with dignity and warmth. I love volunteering for them and giving them money. DCM is awesome!

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the relationships with the people that are in need as well as the volunteers. On Saturdays at lunch Donna and Ken entertain and it is pure fun to see people with a million cares sing along and dance.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff have been with DCM for more than 5 years - very rare - and they care! The volunteers come from everywhere in the community and are incredibly generous with their time and talents.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

With more funding, DCM could provide more housing to women and children - and with really big funding - medical and mental health care at a basic level.
