At Dignity, we believe we can collaboratively end homelessness in Australia. To do this, we empower people who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness to prevent, respond to and end their homelessness. Dignity currently provides supported temporary accommodation and longer-term housing and employment programs for hundreds of people every night of the year and operates multiple programs to prevent homelessness including food relief and education across Australia.
Everything we do is guided by two core beliefs:
Every person should be treated with dignity
Collaboratively, we can end homelessness in Australia – one person at a time
We do more than help people who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness. We treat everyone with dignity and empower people to find a fresh way forward.
Empowering people at risk of or experiencing homelessness
Here’s what we do every day to empower people in need:
Our supported temporary accommodation provides a home and haven, not just shelter
Our volunteers prepare home-cooked meals for our guest homes and the community
Partnering with Thread Together, our guests receive brand new clothing
Guests are triaged by our onsite support team and provided person-centred support
Raising awareness to dispel the myths and stigmas around homelessness
Offering life skills programs for our residents and the community
Founded in 2015, we empower people to end their homelessness. With a person-centred approach, we have an extremely high success rate of supporting our guests to find their path forward into stable housing, whether that’s a private rental or connecting them with other service providers in their area.
- 200+People accommodated every night
