Dignity Matters is a registered charity that supplies feminine hygiene products and underwear to women and school-age girls living in homeless or low-income situations, to help them stay healthy, regain self-confidence, and live with basic dignity.
There are over 22,000 homeless women and school-age girls in Massachusetts alone. Every month, they face the humiliating reality of limited or no access to tampons or pads. Many face a dilemma of choosing between buying food or sanitary napkins. In such desperate circumstances, the use of unhygienic items such as plastic bags, socks, or magazines in place of feminine hygiene products is not uncommon, and this leads to health issues, school absenteeism, and low self-esteem.
Why SPECIFICALLY feminine hygiene products and underwear? Food stamps do NOT cover these products, people rarely donate them to charities, and shelters and public schools, with their often-limited funding, cannot cope with the demand for them.
