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.

Q: “What would you tell another veteran experiencing homelessness about Operation Dignity?”
A: “I would tell them my story of being homeless and how the program helped me. It gave me a safe place to sleep and helped me find permanent housing. My case manager was really supportive, too.”
