Since 1993, Operation Dignity has worked to house and serve the most vulnerable people experiencing homelessness in Alameda County, including veterans and people living in encampments.Learn About Us
At Operation Dignity, we don’t leave our veterans on the battlefield. We help them get to a stable, permanent home.
Our outreach team provides people in encampments with basic needs and connects them to housing services.
We partner with affordable housing developers to help formerly homeless adults and children keep their housing and thrive.

“What keeps me alive is knowing there are people out there who don’t think I’m expendable. There are a lot of homeless veterans who don’t come forward because they just don’t know that there’s help available. Operation Dignity has given me hope – I’m one of the lucky ones.”
