Dignity Housing Gala: Because Play Matters,

Hilton Philadelphia at Penn's Landing, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States Hilton Philadelphia at Penn's Landing, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

  • About the event

    Armed with the mission to break the cycle of homelessness in Philadelphia, Dignity Housing is a nonprofit that provides quality transitional and permanent housing with supportive services to homeless individuals and families. We help them stabilize their lives, move toward self-sufficiency, and find permanent housing.

    On Saturday, March 30, 2019, Dignity Housing will host our Annual Fundraising Gala, to raise awareness of our organization’s ongoing work and to celebrate our playground project, Beverly's Playground Sponsored by Fox & Roach/Trident Charities for the children who reside at Dignity Housing. This spring we will be breaking ground on the playground project and our gala will be in celebration of this momentous event and promote our children’s well-being “Because Play Matters.”

    Why should you sponsor?

    Last year, proceeds from our Annual Gala helped to provide housing and supportive services to 161 individuals in 64 households – including 87 children and helped twelve households successfully transition into permanent housing.

    The Gala will be held at the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing – 201 S. Columbus Boulevard – and feature fabulous food, drink, music, dancing, and a beautiful view of the Philadelphia waterfront, along with a silent auction. Check out the site now: www.dh2019.givesmart.com

    We will send out the information through a print invitation, social media, website, and email blasts. Sponsors will be recognized before, during, and after the event. 

    Your involvement truly makes a difference to our residents and the homeless population of Philadelphia. We thank you again for your generosity.

    For over 30 years Dignity has been successfully providing quality transitional and permanent supportive housing and services that move homeless individuals and families toward greater self-sufficiency.  Over the years we have served more than 5,000 families, with many success stories to share. Graduates have gone on to successful careers, including our newly elected Board Chair, Darlene Callands, who was a Dignity tenant in the mid-1990s. Ms. Callands was CEO of a national non-profit and is now Community Relations Manager for the Delaware River Port Authority. She credits Dignity Housing in helping her succeed because Dignity gives, “a hand-up, not a hand-out.”
