The 2016 Open Palm Awards honors not only the accomplishments of Dolores Street Community Services, but those who have made profound contributions to support affordable housing, homeless services, and immigrant communities in San Francisco.  All funds raised at this event will support Dolores Street’s vision for a vibrant and diverse San Francisco where multiple cultures, life experiences and contributions are honored, and all people live with dignity and hope.

Come celebrate our 2016 awardees…

National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is the nation’s leading voice for dignity and fairness for millions of domestic workers in the United States.  Here in California, the Alliance has supported the California Domestic Worker Coalition, which won a Domestic Worker Bill of Rights in 2013.  The alliance has changed the lives of tens of thousands of workers and shaped a new national and international conversation about the value of domestic work and its place in society.

Bevan Dufty was director of the office of HOPE (Housing Opportunities Partnerships and Engagement) for the City and County of San Francisco until his retirement last November. During his tenure in the position, he helped thousands of San Franciscans experiencing homelessness by ensuring that the City’s services were responsive to their needs. His specific efforts with Dolores Street included a strong leadership role in opening Jazzie’s Place, as well as being readily available to help clients in crisis in both our shelter and SRO Collaborative programs.

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
