Our Programs

Are you a veteran in search of housing assistance? Contact us here.

Since 1993, Operation Dignity has been on the front lines of fighting homelessness in Alameda County. We provide shelter, housing, street outreach, and supportive services to people experiencing homelessness, with a special focus on veterans in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Each year, we serve more than 1,500 people, including some of the most vulnerable individuals experiencing homelessness in Alameda County. In FY23, we served almost 200 veterans who were homeless.

We use evidence-based best practices in our programs, including Harm Reduction, Housing First, Trauma-Informed Care, and Progressive Engagement.

Please note that our services for non-veterans are mainly limited to information and referral; we can work with you to help you find other housing assistance.
