Project Homeless Connect: Thank You

Nov 05, 2016

Thanks to the efforts of 304 dedicated volunteers, we were able to serve 357 individuals experiencing homelessness with over two dozen life changing services on October 19. In what The Washington Post described as a “smorgasbord of goods and services,” our volunteers served as one-on-one guides to make sure each participant received the resources they needed and left with a smile. Together, we grew our impact this year by 30 percent. View photos here.

Special Guests
We were happy to welcome Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, who thanked volunteers and sponsors for their hard work and called for more housing solutions in Washington, DC.

Lamar Neagle, Midfielder and Forward for D.C. United, also stopped by to volunteer and donate lunches.

Sharing Your Stories

We were blown away by the effort each volunteer put into their role, and touched by many who shared stories from the day on social media.

Our local news teams were also on the scene to help spread the word:
