Dignity Housing is the first housing and supportive services program in the nation to be founded and guided by homeless people and activists. Since 1988, Dignity has provided both quality affordable housing and supportive services to thousands of people – primarily single African American women and their children. Dignity has cultivated an individualized services approach to meeting the complex needs of homeless individuals and families. Dignity currently manages an inventory of 58 units of affordable housing concentrated in Northwest Philadelphia.
Dignity offers life skills development, health and wellness supports, education and workforce development as well as services for housing placement beyond Dignity.
