Davis Community Meals and Housing

Davis Community Meals' mission is to provide low-income and homeless individuals and families with housing, food, and human services to help them rebuild their lives.
We provide a free meal on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and lunch on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. to seniors, low-income and homeless individuals and families, and any other member of our community. The meals are prepared and served at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, 640 Hawthorne Lane in Davis.
Our Emergency Shelter and Transitional Housing Program for Adult Men and Women is able to provide shelter to 12 individuals; 8 men and 4 women. Of the 12 bed spaces, 10 are reserved for individuals in our transitional housing program and 2 for emergency shelter. The transitional housing program for adult men and women allows homeless individuals to reside in a safe and stable environment that meets their daily needs for food and shelter while allowing them the opportunity to receive supportive services and to rebuild their lives. Individuals are allowed to remain in the program for a maximum period of 18 months.
We have a housing first program for 4 individuals in Davis named New Pathways, a harm reduction model program for chronically homeless individuals.
The Family Transitional Housing Program serves homeless families with minor children and currently offers 5 units of housing: 1 two bedroom single-family residence: 2 2-bedroom apartment units and 3 1-bedroom apartment units. The maximum length of stay in the program is 18 months.
We offer a day shelter/resource center Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 1111 H Street, Davis. The focus of our day shelter/resource center is to provide homeless and low-income individuals and family’s access to basic necessities of life, such as showers, personal hygiene products, clothing, laundry facilities, and other necessities. Additionally, we provide access to a telephone, mail address service, a computer room and referrals to various programs and services.
We have a street outreach program to serve those who are difficult to serve and generally shun services at traditional programs.
We have an employment program, Pathways to Employment, providing job skills, aims to boost self-esteem, and foster an individual’s work ethic.
Our permanent supportive housing program at Cesar Chavez Plaza is the first in Yolo County targeting chronically homeless individuals and those at risk of homelessness who also suffer from mental and/or physical disabilities, including chronic substance abuse. The supportive housing program offers a 1 bedroom apartment to those adults whose incomes are extremely low and offers housing to those who receive fixed incomes such as SSI, veteran’s benefits, etc.
Further, we are currently constructing a new permanent supportive housing complex in Davis, Creekside, which will offer 90 units of housing and be a replica of Cesar Chavez Plaza. Construction began in November 2018 and we estimate the complex will be open to residents in February/March 2020.

          During the winter months, we operate a cold weather shelter in Davis to provide shelter to 10 homeless individuals; 8 men and 2 women. The shelter operates from mid November through March 31st. The program allows homeless individuals a safe, warm shelter during the winter months. The individuals admitted to the shelter need not be “clean and sober”, however, they must be able to live in a community setting, abide by the house rules, and not be a danger to themselves or others. All participants receive referrals for emergency services and other community resources.

Clients are offered services similar to our transitional housing clients, such as career counseling programs, substance abuse recovery programs, mental health counseling, life skills training, individual planning, and assistance obtaining permanent housing.

          Our permanent supportive housing program at Cesar Chavez Plaza is the first in Yolo County targeting chronically homeless individuals and those at risk of homelessness who also suffer from mental and/or physical disabilities, including chronic substance abuse. The supportive housing program offers a 1 bedroom apartment to those adults whose incomes are extremely low and offers housing to those who receive fixed incomes such as SSI, veteran’s benefits, etc. The apartment complex has a total of 52 units, 19 of which are special needs units providing supportive services. DCM provides a full time staffperson who provides supportive services to the 19 special needs units and to others in need in the apartment complex.

In August 2008, DCM collaborated with the County of Yolo and the City of Davis to open a transitional housing program for former foster youth. The program provides transitional housing for eight (8) former foster youth aged 18 to 25. Each is provided with an apartment unit at a housing cooperative located in the city of Davis.
