Eight Key Steps To Take To Ensure A Successful Company Rebrand

Organizations may carry with them a long history, but sometimes, it may be necessary to revamp the way a brand appears to the public.

Dwell with Dignity

Who and What Are We? Dwell with Dignity is a non-profit group of Interior Designers and volunteers dedicated to creating soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty. We provide and install home interiors for families that include furnishings and art, bedding and kitchen supplies, and food in the pantry. Our mission is to help families escape poverty and homelessness through design. One household at a time. Why do we do what we do? If we can change a person’s surroundings, we can change their outlook on life. Exposing children (especially) to a nurturing home environment, that includes good design and art, can inspire a standard of living that will carry-over to future generations. Exposing parents to this same environment will allow them to see the positive impact it has on their family; inspiring them to maintain a standard of living they can be proud of and thrive in. The People We Help: The families we help are dedicated to changing their lives by learning to become self-sufficient. These families will reside in single-family homes and apartments that are provided by social service agencies or attained with the assistance of such agencies. Families must be able to remain in these homes for at least one year so they have the opportunity to absorb the impact of their environment. We find our families by working with existing social service organizations that have programs in place to help struggling families attain self-sufficiency. Agencies must have accountability-based programs that address housing, education, career, finance, life skills, and children’s needs. Organizations that are approved by our board may nominate families in need.
