Welcome to the League of Human Dignity
We believe people who experience disability have the right to expect the same opportunity as anyone else to live, work and play in their communities. They have the same right to access benefits, services, resources and facilities. They have the same right to contribute freely, according to their potential, regardless of their disability. People with disabilities have the right to make their own decisions, to live independently and should never be forced to live in institutions.
The League of Human Dignity is a consumer-based nonprofit organization, whose mission is to promote the full integration of people with disabilities into society. To that end, we will advocate for their needs and rights while providing quality services to help them become and remain independent citizens.
Our centers provide services for people with disabilities to use in living full, independent lives. Each unique path to independence is designed by our consumers, with the assistance and advice of our staff. Here you are not a client, patient or victim. You are a consumer, with the power to make your own decisions.
We at the League of Human Dignity have been promoting independent living for people with disabilities since 1971.
The League of Human Dignity is happy to announce that its Extended Hours Service (EHS) Transportation Program in Lincoln is doubling its available rides. EHS has begun offering 70 rides each week, up from the 35 weekly rides it has offered for the past three years.
The increase is possible thanks to a matching grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration. The funds are administered by the Nebraska Department of Roads, and the League thanks department staff for their assistance in applying for the grant.
For more information about EHS and how to take advantage of this service, contact the League’s Lincoln office at 402-441-7871.
