Benning Road Groundbreaking Ceremony

Benning Road

SOME will hold a Groundbreaking Ceremony on Wednesday, July 29 at the site of our future, 320,000 square foot, green building on Benning Road in NE, DC. Your support, combined with that of other caring donors and partners, is making it possible for us to create this landmark facility that will combine affordable housing, job training and health care.

For the first time, homeless and low-income individuals and families in our community will be able to access these key services in a single location, enabling them to achieve stability and independence. If you would like to receive an invitation to the Groundbreaking Ceremony, please contact Tracy Jefferson at tjefferson@some.org or (202) 797-8806, ext. 1070.

Ms Hill

Ms. Hill’s Story

You would never guess that Ms. Hill had experienced homelessness. But for two and a half years, she lived on the streets as she pounded the pavement, looking for work. She finally caught a break - watch her inspiring story and see how everything changed.

Roland

Advocates’ Work Pays Off

At SOME’s recent Advocacy Day at DC City Council, Roland, a resident of SOME’s affordable housing, gathered with over 200 fellow advocates and testified about his experience of homelessness and the importance of affordable housing. His voice and hundreds of others were heard; on June 30, the DC City Council passed a budget that includes critical investments in affordable housing and other key services. We thank the City Council for their leadership and responsiveness to the needs of poor and homeless Washingtonians.

Summer Camp

Summer Camp…for Seniors!

On Monday, 60 very excited senior citizens boarded the bus to SOME's Senior Summer Camp. A wonderful week-long retreat in West Virginia, Summer Camp is extra special because many of the seniors have never been on vacation. The campers will enjoy nature walks, exercise classes, abundant food, games, arts & crafts, bingo, music and companionship.

SOME is in need of the following items.

Deodorant
Rain ponchos
New Underwear
New Socks
Ground coffee
