As a start-up 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we work to advocate for students and those without a home in the D.C. metro region. We partner with schools in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia to provide students with the necessary items and services for a well-rounded life. We currently partner with 5 schools, and are in the process of expanding. Most of our students come from low-income families, some are homeless and live in temporary housing. We work with teachers and administrative staff at the schools to determine need, and from there we provide support. We’ve provided school supplies, backpacks, clothes, school uniforms, as well as toiletries for their families to take home.

In 2018, we launched our experiences program, which focuses on giving experiences, rather than

things, to kids. For many of the families we support, taking their kids to a sporting

event, an art gallery or a concert are beyond their financial means. We hope that by providing them

these opportunities, it gives them a richer experience growing up, and as a result, opens their eyes to

the possibilities that could be. Our past programs have included professional basketball games where students are able to watch the players warm-up on the court, in-door rock climbing and trauma informed yoga.

For our city’s homeless, we distribute care packages, clothes, food and other necessities. We reach out

to people on our streets, and help them with their everyday life as best we can. We seek to make a

difference in someone else’s life, even if it’s only for a day.
