THE DC WISE partnership program
DC WISE Partners are organizations that are providing critical services and opportunities to women and children in Washington, D.C. who are homeless, low-income or otherwise at-risk. Our dollars help to provide essential support services and supplies, create opportunities for education and employment, create healthy environments and challenge systemic injustice by advocating for policies and practices.
The mission of A Wider Circle is to end poverty through on-the-ground programs and services, as well as through the development of large-scale solutions to its root causes. Their holistic approach focuses on the creation of stable homes; workforce development programming to move families to economic self-sufficiency; neighborhood revitalization; and the creation of greater awareness and engagement by the community, as a whole.
A Wider Circle has been busier than ever during the COVID-19 lockdown, making 7,000 calls to their clients, helping them to identify resources for health, housing, food, and other needs, as well as engaging in daily food distribution as many people in the region are living in scarcity.
They need our HELP to continue their work. Explore their website to learn more about the organization as a whole and then give generously through link below.
