The Day Shelter at Downtown Daily Bread is now open daily, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The expansion of the Day Shelter to weekends is in response to a vital need in the city of Harrisburg. While there are many businesses, shops, restaurants, libraries, and other “places of shelter” open during the work week, many of these places are closed on the weekends in the City of Harrisburg. Our clients report that a reliable and safe place of shelter is desperately needed on the weekends. Downtown Daily Bread will open the Day Shelter and continue to serve lunch on the weekends. Other services, including showers, mails, lockers, and counselors, will continue to be available only on weekdays.
Downtown Daily Bread seeks donations to assist with the cost of running the Day Shelter on the weekends. If you are interested in making a donation, visit www.downtowndailybread.org or mail a check payable to Downtown Daily Bread: 310 North Third Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101.

Since 1983, Downtown Daily Bread has served the hungry and homeless of Harrisburg. Downtown Daily Bread is a mission project of Pine Street Presbyterian Church, a 501(c)3 organization.
