The Dignity Project's mission is to restore a sense of dignity, self-sufficiency and pride in the lives of individuals and families through vocational training and services for the economically disadvantaged.
The Dignity Project trains individuals in vehicle repair, computer restoration, after school coordination and capacity building through the AmeriCorps service program. As AmeriCorps members receive training, the organization provides services to the economically disadvantaged. The Dignity Project donates the repaired vehicles to qualified, low-income individuals who lack transportation. Restored computers are given to non-profits or low-income families. The after school program is open to local at-risk youth. Recently, the organization accepted the responsibility of operating the Life Defined Mentoring Program for adults struggling with low-income or self-sufficiency. The Dignity Project is supported by community donations (cars and computers) as well as federal and local grants.
