I had the privilege of working with the women at N Street Village and it was a humbling experience. I heard many stories from women who were required to come up with plans to change their lives and received encouragement and support to achieve their goals. It is not enough to provide "hots and cots". Real change comes from within, and these women are both gifted and powerful. They now have hope to discover those talents and to employ them in helping themselves, each other, and our communities. Please help to alleviate homelessness and poverty.
