What We Do.
St. Dominics Outreach, located in the heart of Brooklyn, NY, is a charitable foundation dedicated to helping those in need. With the dedication of our volunteers, and partners, we strive to improve the lives of everyone who needs help that we meet. Contact us to see what you can do to bring about positive change.
At St. Dominic's Outreach we depend on many volunteers. Some volunteers give of their time at one of our many opportunities such as Hopes Kitchen, Folding and Sorting or Street Outreach. Others give financially which as time goes on has become just as important. An average outreach night cost about a $150 depending on the food that is served. We take great pride as being one of the few groups on the streets serving hot, hardy home cooked meals. And our friends come from all over to eat our food.
Another major expense but one of our more exciting events is Hopes Kitchen. We open the doors of St. Dominic's and serve a hot home cooked meal restaurant style. We open our storage room for people to get much needed supplies, such as clothing, footwear, underwear etc. People living on the streets don't have access to washer machines and depend on groups like ours to get a change of clothing. In addition to clothing the old CYO showers are back up and running and gives our friends a chance to take hot showers. There is also medical staff offering check ups and testing. All these things cost money and a typical Hopes Kitchen cost us about $550 we have been very fortunate with different groups and families paying for these nights.
Whatever you feel comfortable with we are always happy to have new volunteers or new donors.
