Think Dignity is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire, empower, and organize the community to advance basic dignity for those living on the streets. We embrace a vision in which dignity is a human right, everyone is valued, and each has a safe place to lay her head. Since 2006, Think Dignity has led social justice campaigns and provided cutting-edge services such as a transitional storage center, youth legal representation, 24/7 bathrooms, and mobile showers. Think Dignity is now recruiting members for its Board of Directors (“Board”) and Board committees to support the organization as it grows and adapts to meet the challenges of COVID-19.
Our board is deeply passionate about Think Dignity’s mission and vision. In addition to standard governance roles and responsibilities, board members serve as community leaders and actively fundraise and network to advance basic dignity. Serving on the Board is an excellent opportunity for community leaders, activists, seasoned professionals, budding entrepreneurs, and anyone else looking to make a read and lasting impact on the lives of others. Board membership is a rewarding experience, which allows you to give back to the community, showcase your leadership skills, and network with others passionate about our city and its diverse communities.
