About Us

All Together in Dignity Fourth World is a movement of solidarity among and in collaboration with the most excluded families around the world.

The roots of ATD Fourth World go back to the emergency housing camps built outside Paris in the 1950s. From the humble works of Father Joseph Wresinski, a Catholic priest assigned as chaplain to the camp in Noisy-le-Grand, ATD Fourth World has grown and today has grassroots teams in 34 countries around the world, holding general consultative status at the United Nations, UNICEF, UNESCO, and the ILO, in addition to participatory status at the Council of Europe. ATD Fourth World also maintains a permanent delegation to the European Union.
