The purpose of Davis Community Meals and Housing is to provide low-income and homeless individuals and families with housing, food, and human services to help them rebuild their lives.
Davis Community Meals and Housing (DCMH) opened its doors in 1990 as a non-profit, non-denominational volunteer organization serving a free weekly meal to people in and around Davis who were homeless or without financial resources.
We've expanded in Feb. 2015 to street outreach program to those individuals and families who did not traditionally seek out services. Nov. 2015 DCMH and partners, Neighborhood Partners and the John Stewart Company, were awarded contract for Creekside Permanent Supportive Housing, 90 units of permanent supportive housing with 44 units for chronically homeless individuals with special needs. In December 2015, DCMH began overnight staffing to the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter of Davis. In February 2016, DCMH along with partners Yolo County Housing, Yolo Community Care Continuum, the county of Yolo and the City of Davis, collaborated to open New Pathways, bridge housing to chronically homeless individuals. In February 2017, DCMH worked with an advisory board to oversee a jobs program for individuals living homeless - Pathways to Employment.
