    Sharing the Journey: We’re in this Together

    IT’S NOT TOO LATE! Donate Today!

    What does it take to serve people experiencing homelessness in the middle of a global pandemic? Hear from volunteers, participants, community partners, staff and clergy who will share the inspiring and uplifting stories of compassion, connection, and creativity that have kept The Dignity Center open during lockdown.

    TOGETHER we’ll share the experience of walking with our neighbors on their path to stability, and making the journey that truly transforms lives.

    You will be invited to give generously to support the mission of The Dignity Center–now more than ever!
