M&Q Matching Campaign for Homeless Children's Playtime

THE STORY:

Homeless Children's Playtime supports children, young mothers and families experiencing homelessness in Washington, D.C. by ensuring consistent opportunities for play, family support services, and advocacy for affordable housing. Through weekly programs, volunteers provide activities, snacks, and field trips for children at five emergency shelter and transitional housing sites in The District. The trauma-informed programs seek to restore normalcy by providing opportunities for children to learn and heal through play, and empowering them to make choices, express themselves, relate to others, and find support. 


Donations from the M&Q Matching Campaign will be directed to the site at which I volunteer: Turning Point in Columbia Heights. This two-year emergency transitional housing site, run by The Salvation Army, offers young single mothers facing domestic violence, eviction or other personal challenges the job training, relationship building and emotional support opportunites needed to prepare them for the road ahead. Twice a week, volunteers from Homeless Children's Playtime spend time with the kids to play and create giving the mothers the chance to work, connect with their case manager or just have time to themselves.  The children range from 6 months to 7 years old. The money raised from this campign will go towards new toys, crafts, (healthy) snacks, and supplies to offset cost of living expenses related to childcare for the mothers (including formula, dippers, food, clothes, etc.).
