Providing Housing

Dignity provides decent, affordable housing in three transitional programs, each specially designed to meet the varying needs of the tenant population.

Alicia’s House

A secured, gated transitional housing program (up to 24 months) for families and individuals experiencing homelessness due to domestic violence. Fourteen (14) units are for women with children, two (2) units for single women. All apartments in this development are fully furnished and supports focus on Trauma-Recovery.

Better Options for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS)

A transitional housing program (up to 18 months) for single, low-income mothers who became homeless due to substance abuse and are in recovery. BOSS provides 8 units of housing for women and their children and offers Intense Supportive Services to assist them in maintaining sobriety and moving toward self-sufficiency.

Enhanced Services Project (ESP)

Permanent Supportive Housing for formerly homeless residents with disabilities (or that have an adult or child family member with a disability) including chronic substance abuse, HIV-AIDS, dual diagnoses (substance abuse and mental health) or physical disabilities. Residents receive support with Enhance Independent Living Skills. ESP has 34 scattered-site units located throughout Northwest Philadelphia and is Dignity’s only program serving male and female heads of households.
