Temenos Catholic Worker provides outreach, advocay, intervention and personalist service to homeless youth and male and female sex workers and addicts in San Francisco's Polk Gulch area "in the personalist tradition of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin." The work includes food distribution, needle exchange, health products (including condom distribution.) Temenos' primary purpose is being a "presence of grace" in the midst of despair, addiction and violence of the street culture.

Consider contacting the Temenos Catholic Worker to volunteer your time or to participate in their community life.
