Dignity Matters is a non-profit organization that collects and supplies feminine hygiene products and underwear to women and girls who are homeless or otherwise in need, in order to help them stay healthy, regain self-confidence, and live with basic dignity.
Homeless women and school girls, both sheltered and unsheltered, every month face the humiliating reality of no access to tampons or pads. Their dilemma of having to choose between buying food to survive or pads is too common.
It is hard to imagine, but the lack of access to pads, tampons and underwear is a HUGE issue for tens of thousands of women in USA.
Why homeless women and school girls DESPERATELY need tampons, pads, bras and panties:
- Food stamps do not cover them
- They are expensive
- They are almost never donated to shelters
- Shelters have no funds to purchase feminine hygiene products for their clients. Bras are considered a luxury.
