This microenterprise is a program of the Franciscan Workers of Junipero Serra, the organization that operates Dorothy’s Place services for the homeless. The goal of the Peter Maurin Screen Printers is to train and employ chronically homeless street people that have extraordinary barriers to employment, all the while developing income to sustain our Women Alive Emergency Shelter.
The enterprise is named after the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, Peter Maurin (the “Catholic Worker” is the model on which the Franciscan Workers base their life of service). We are a professional operation making custom screen printed t-shirts, aprons and canvas bags, mostly through bulk orders but we also have a few unique Chinatown designs on hand for purchase at our 15 Soledad Street location. The designs are printed on American-made stock from a “sweat-shop free” supplier.
