DC Charity Spotlight: Hope and a Home

We have all read about the need: skyrocketing rents; families at risk of losing their homes (or in shelters with no home to lose); children at risk for low academic performance, teen pregnancy, or gang involvement. Each year its Transitional Housing Program provides 18 struggling families with housing at one-sixth the current rental rate, and prepares them for private market rent through financial literacy training, savings plans, and moving assistance.
