WATCH: The Dignity Project

Jun 17, 2019

Providing dignity to lives lost to homelessness while helping those in need get into the workplace. That’s the driving force of a local program called Memorials Co-op Ink – an effort of Saint Joseph’s House of Hospitality. The group creates wooden burial caskets and urns for indigent community members after death. Members of the group join this edition of Need to Know to explain the impact of this project not just in honoring the dead, but also in providing more life for the living.
