Veteran Shelter and Housing

Operation Dignity provides shelter, transitional housing, and supportive services to help veterans and their families escape the crisis of homelessness and regain stability.

We operate 15 shelter beds and 91 transitional housing beds for veterans at three properties in Oakland, Alameda, and Berkeley. Veterans at all of our sites work one-on-one with a case manager to help them create a self-sufficiency plan and secure permanent housing.

On a given night, we keep more than 100 homeless veterans safe, off the street, and with access to nutritious food, peer support, and housing search services.
