Stepping Out for the Homeless Fundraising Event, The National Press Club, Friday, 25. October 2019



(Transitional Housing: left to right 50th Street Family Program, Park Road House, and Webster House)



The Coalition for the Homeless will host its 7th Annual Stepping® Out for the Homeless Fundraising Event. The event will be held on Friday, October 25, 2019, at the National Press Club in downtown Washington, DC. By supporting this event, you have the opportunity to help change the lives of men, women and children who are experiencing homelessness. 
This year, our fundraising efforts are focused on three of our transitional housing programs:


50th Street Family Program


Park Road House


Webster House


Your support will help raise funds for operating expenses and when individuals and families transition to permanent housing, we can provide financial assistance for rent/deposit/utilities, furniture and other basic needs.

HOMELESSNESS IS SOMETHING YOU EXPERIENCE, NOT WHO YOU ARE
People experiencing homelessness have suffered trauma due to substance abuse, health crises, job loss or domestic violence. The Coalition for the Homeless provides a safe and dignified environment for individuals and families to get through their crisis. The average length of stay in our transitional (temporary) housing program is 6 months. Clients have the opportunity to address emotional needs, receive case management, housing and employment placement assistance, and other supportive services. Our top three goals are to help individuals and families find permanent affordable housing, provide employment assistance, and advocate for affordable housing.
