We are Focused on High-Impact Programs
Mission: Dignity U Wear helps people in need by providing new size-specific clothing to our partnering non-profit social service agencies and school districts, with a focus on children, families in crisis, the homeless and veterans.
Our Vision: To help create communities where all people are able to live with dignity in times of adversity. To touch the hearts of those in need to create a bridge that will take individuals from a life of despair to one of becoming a productive member of society.
Where do the clothes come from?
Most of the clothing we distribute is gifts from generous friends in the apparel industry. Hundreds of companies donate annually; however, we are always in need of more clothing. In-kind donations of clothing are our largest resource to fulfill our mission to help change lives.
How is it distributed?
Since our founding in 2000, Dignity U Wear has provided brand-new properly-sized clothing to close to two million people. All of this is in collaboration with life-saving homeless shelters, foster homes, schools, battered women’s shelters, human trafficking organizations, veteran agencies and many others. We enhance other agencies’ programs, in which brand new clothing can make a huge difference. Clothing is delivered based on the specific needs of people in need – and always at no charge to the person receiving the clothing.
