About Dignity Housing
Established in 1988, Dignity Housing’s mission is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty that confronts low-income families and individuals in Philadelphia. Who We Serve Every day, Dignity Housing receives referrals for families and individuals who are homeless, desperate for a place to call home, and looking for help to make sure they never end up in the same situation again. With 26% of individuals living in poverty in Philadelphia, often working minimum wage jobs if they are lucky enough to be employed, all it takes is one month of job loss, one car in need of repair, or one large medical bill, to cause a person to miss a rent payment and soon find themselves homeless. Many of the women at Dignity Housing are also fleeing domestic violence or recovering from substance abuse, often arriving with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. Nationwide, one out of every four women that is homeless is such as a direct result of domestic violence. Why We Exist Over twenty-nine years ago, Dignity’s founder and first Executive Director Alicia Christian, formerly homeless herself, had a conversation with a homeless man who explained what it was like to be without a home: “The first thing you lose is your dignity. On the streets, in abandoned buildings, you can’t meet your basic needs in privacy or safely.” Our name is Dignity Housing and we make sure everyone who walks through our doors is treated with dignity, is provided a home maintained with dignity, and receives services that help build their personal dignity. How You Can Help With your support, we can continue to provide these much needed services to families and individuals who have experienced homelessness, plus extra programming such as our After School Enrichment Activities for Dignity youth and monthly clinical case management consultations with a licensed clinician which provide staff the opportunity to discuss challenging issues related residents and receive training on special clinical topics.
