Support Our Misson 
Save the date for our 2017 Open Palm Awards on Friday, September 15th, where we will celebrate Dolores Street's accomplishments as well as honor community heroes who work tirelessly for dignity, respect and human rights for immigrants, low income, and homeless communities.   

  • Our Housing & Homeless Services Award will be presented to Wolfgang Stüwe of the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, who has been a key City partner in the success of Casa Quezada, our 52 until supportive housing program, since its opening in 2011. 
  • Our Immigrant Rights Award will go to the African Advocacy Network, a program that joined DSCS in 2009 as an essentially volunteer run group addressing the needs of newly arrived African immigrants.  They now have six staff members and will soon spin off to become their own African-led non-profit.

Our Vision

We envision a vibrant and diverse San Francisco where multiple cultures, life experiences and contributions are honored, and all people live with dignity and hope. Our vision is of a just and sustainable community where all residents – regardless of income, immigration or health status – have equal rights and access to resources, and are empowered to fully participate in shaping the City’s future.

Our Mission

Dolores Street Community Services nurtures individual wellness and cultivates collective power among low-income and immigrant communities to create a more just society.

Our Core Values

Those who are the most marginalized by our society have a right to build community and access resources for a healthy life

Finding strength in individual struggles gives rise to transformative change

Shared experiences create connections that build power for common struggles

All people have intrinsic value and make unique contributions to our neighborhood and city

Redistributed Power
People most affected by injustice should be leaders in creating solutions
