i.Dignify is an organization that is determined to be part of the solution to the orphans of the world. Our mission is to equip people to bring freedom to them through the power of love in action. We are also helping the local and global communities become more aware of the severity and oppressive world of orphans, poverty, abortions, addictions, and abusive acts committed against the weak.
Founders and Directors:
Bob and Kimberly Johnson are passionate about bringing change and permanent freedom to victims of human sex trafficking and the orphans. A life altering encounter with a fifteen year old girl rescued out of the sex trade in Cambodia caused Bob and Kimberly to make a drastic shift from the city of San Francisco to a worldwide focus. Their heart is to see people become who they were truly created to be and assist in revealing identity and hope to those that have had it stolen from them.
Bob Johnson is a radical lover to the lost and the broken. He has a passion for treating “Hell’s Trash like Heaven’s Treasures.” His innovative approach to loving people has stirred many to do whatever it takes to bring the lost into the Kingdom of God. Bob is a fifth-generation preacher with a total of nine generations of preachers on his dad and mom’s sides combined. They became faith in action as they loved the homeless, the prostitutes, street people and inner-city kids. They continue to live out that life message today through the vision of being, “Jesus to the World.”
Kimberly has a huge heart for justice and seeing orphans welcomed into lovings arms and families. Her focus is primarily on adoption but she is also passionate about preaching and her family. Together, Bob and Kimberly have three beautiful children ages four, two, and one. Kimberly is also pregnant with their fourth child who is due in December, and they plan on adopting later this year. She is a woman on fire and desires to see restoration within family and society as a whole, starting with loving the unloveable and bringing the orphans into healthy relationships with mothers and fathers.

What exactly is an orphan? Orphans vary in degrees from children who have no father or mother to sex slaves in brothels, to child soldiers, to the homeless on the street corner or to someone that you're sitting next to at church. An orphan is one who doesn't know their father or a father's love.
Locally: i.Dignify has partnered with organizations that are located in Redding, CA and is dedicated to reaching out to the homeless, neglected, and abused. There will be many opportunities to connect and work with organizations in need of volunteers and donations. We will have signups and more information available soon!
Although a majority of our focus is within the local community, we are also determined to make an impact in other cities and countries around the world. We have had the opportunity to join with organizations in countries such as Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Africa and assist them in the fight against injustices shown towards women and children. i.Dignify wants to invite you to connect and potentially travel worldwide with us as we bring the message of hope, love, and life to the orphans.
