About the event

Project Dignity began on February 14, 2022, as a way to build a sense of community between housed and unhoused community members by sharing food, resources, and community conversations. Since our first “Mondays Matter”, where we served cookies, coffee, and hot chocolate to a small handful of unhoused neighbors at McArthur Park in Central Long Beach, California, we collaborated on resources and supplies.

Over the past year, our efforts have become a reliant source of mutual aid, connections to city-led resources, system navigation, and neighbor-to-neighbor connections with community volunteers who also simply listen.

Project Dignity efforts created collaborations between neighborhood associations, community organizations, faith-based groups, and the government to bring dignity to neighbors experiencing homelessness. While we are aware that these efforts are "band-aids" where a tourniquet is needed, it is better to make connections and bring dignity and hope while we advocate for a city-wide or regional Strategic Master Plan for Homelessness.
