I have entered Dignity House in this competition in order to obtain the necessary seed funding to get this project off the ground.
Many organizations would like to see more specifics and details which are illustrated in a needs assessment and feasibility study before they get on board so seed funding is a critical piece of the development process for this Dignity House project.
