How It Makes A Difference

Dignity Matters seeks to end period poverty in Massachusetts. We currently provide free monthly menstrual care, underwear, and bras to 8,500 girls and women. Without these items, girls miss school and women miss work. To provide these supplies to women and girls who are unhoused or living in poverty, we rely on donation drives throughout the year.

Where to Serve

From Home/Anywhere*
