Dignity Housing

Posted April 30th, 2014 at 10:56 am.

Established in 1988, Dignity Housing is the first housing and supportive services program in the nation to be founded and guided by homeless people and activists.  Since its inception, Dignity has provided both quality, affordable housing and supportive services to thousands of people – primarily single African American women and their children. Heads of households residing at Dignity Housing are working on goals of self-sufficiency; children and teens improve their study habits and grades; a number of adults pursue higher education in trade schools and colleges/universities.  Various volunteer opportunities are available: after-school help, distributing/sorting donations, special events/fundraising, and workshop presentations on money management, health, and nutrition.
