Dignity in Action

Engage, Empower, Elevate

Welcome to For Dignity, a registered 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping women rise from cycles of defeat. Our committed team travels to correctional facilities and recovery homes throughout the United States to engage, empower, and elevate. We provide life-giving resources and workshops that contain keys to help women reclaim hope, expand their faith, and reframe their destinies. For Dignity is paving the way for healing and freedom, and the outcome is transformed lives and lower recidivism rates.
