THE DIGNITY CENTER  |  COVID-19

THE DIGNITY CENTER IS NOT CLOSED

We are open and operating with limited interaction. We have entered phase three of our COVID-19 programming support plan. This includes connecting with participants remotely; community check-ins by phone and email, assistance requests through appointments, and serving a home-cooked meal to go. The population we serve is anxious and has nowhere to go to access information or support. There is much work yet to be done as we walk with people on their path to stability.

Community is so important and we will continue to provide what we can, for as long as we can, as best as we can.
