About Us

OUR MISSION: Designs for Dignity transforms nonprofit environments through pro bono design services and in-kind donations — empowering lives through design.

WHY WE EXIST: Designs for Dignity was founded on the belief that every individual should have access to environments that support the wellness of the human spirit. Design is a transformational force in human life. Our physical surroundings directly impact how we feel, react, aspire, and engage. Spaces of hope, dignity, and comfort are foundations for nurturing the growth and success of every human being.

HOW WE DO IT: We harness the combined power of pro bono design and construction talent and donated materials to breathe new life into existing nonprofit spaces giving them the platform from which they can better serve individuals in their focus mission. We collaboratively design human-centric spaces rooted in the needs of each organization.

HOW WE WORK: It starts with a team. Interior designers, architects, and other industry professionals donate time to create healing environments for our service grant recipients. Manufacturers, vendors, craftsmen, clients, and showrooms provide furnishings and materials that are reused in the spaces. Individuals and community advocates round out our team to implement and carry through our mission for each project.
