FOOD & CLOTHES
Partnered with Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services and The Emergency Food Assistance Program, we provide food and clothing to over 800 underserved families in the Sacramento Region. These weekly provisions are in addition to our monthly food program at Pacific Elementary School, serving yet another food starved population.
Sacramento's Winter Sanctuary provides food and shelter during the months of December through March, for the homeless citizens of our city. In 2017, DOZE, housed and fed over 1,500 less fortunate citizens. Over the past seven years, DOZE have partnered with Volunteers of America and Sac Steps Forward to provide this much needed service and assistance.
SPACE OF GRACE
The Space of Grace Youth Academy is a subdivision of the Daughter of Zion Enterpryz. We embrace the talent, wit and enthusiasm of our next generation by using a variety of methods, programs and events to help channel and refine our youth’s special capabilities and empower them to lead successful lives.
The Daughters of Zion (DOZ) Enterpryz’ is a 501c3 non-profit organization, dedicated to
building healthy individuals and families in low income, under-represented, and disadvantaged
communities and closing the gap on homelessness and food deprivation.
Over the last 12 years, the DOZ has been a cornerstone and vital part of the impoverished South
Sacramento Community. Our mission is to prepare youth and adults to be leaders and change
agents within our communities and implement local initiatives to reduce homelessness and food
deprivation. We accomplish this mission by offering weekly, monthly, and quarterly learning
programs to prepare youth to succeed academically, and adults to succeed professionally. This
unique and holistic approach integrates youth and adult learning and inspires family
involvement, strengthens the family and ultimately our communities. We have had marginal
success rates with family reunifications, low income students matriculating to college, adults
maintaining & sustaining permanent housing and employment.
In 2017, our partnerships with Sacramento Food Bank Food Services (SFBFS), the Emergency
Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) and the Sacramento Steps Forward, helped in hunger
reduction and our food, clothing, and shelter program serviced over 9000 families and provided
shelter for over 1500 homeless citizens in the Sacramento region.
