Today, more than 6,000 people are homeless in the Nation's Capital, including 703 families. Children made up 62% of D.C.’s homeless population. Perhaps most troubling is the fact that 45% of all homeless families in the region are headed by working adults . These facts demonstrate the complexity of the problems facing families who are trying to build a bridge from poverty to independence.


Our project addresses this problem by getting at the heart of what is perpetuating poverty for each family and addressing areas of education, financial management, employment and affordable housing, so that each family can achieve long term success.

Long-Term Impact

This project has a proven track record of success with more than 155 families (155 parents & 350 children ) breaking the cycle of poverty. Our families have gone on to buy homes, send their kids to college and make a difference in their community.
