Dorothy Day Center- St. Paul

We are thrilled to be a part of this great project alongside Watson-Forsberg and Catholic Charities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis! Dorothy Day Place, a new 6-story building in the heart of downtown St. Paul, is intended to replace the Dorothy Day Center- an emergency shelter that provides people in need with a dignified, safe place to call home. 

The new multi-use 177 unit facility, will provide meals, shelter, career assistance and other programs to help those struggling to get back on their feet. When finished, the facility will be the largest public-private housing and social services partnership in the state’s history.
