Dignity Village is a intentional community, transitional housing campground and village. If you are interested in living at Dignity Village, learn about our Village Intake Committee. If you are looking for emergency shelter during the winter, we open our Commons during severe weather. If you would like to access basic services, we have a policy for day guests.
“The village is a membership-based community. When space becomes available, the next person on the waiting list receives “guest status” for [sixty] days. In order to become a resident, one must attend all meetings during that time and fill out the admittance agreement form. This internal agreement includes basic rules that promote tolerance and participation, and prohibit violence, drugs, alcohol, theft, and persistent disruptive behavior that puts the community at risk. After another thirty days, a resident may become a member of the non-profit if approved by a vote at the general weekly meeting, which then grants them the right to vote on issues and serve on council.”
