Beautiful Bed Linens for New Transitions


Ms. Chris Cobb and Ms. Stacey Watson coordinated the drive with the ladies in the Fellowship who collected and donated dozens of brand new pillows, colorful sheet sets and pillowcases! A few of the many donated items are pictured here.

First Rising Mt. Zion Baptist Church is a longtime supporter of NEW and also our neighbor on N Street. The church is located across the street from our 611 N Street location, where New Transitions has operated since 1988. Thank you so very much to all of the Sisters In Fellowship and the entire First Rising Mt. Zion Baptist Church family for their continued partnership and support.

It’s been a challenging time for all of us as we adjust our days, our budgets and our expectations to COVID-19. And now, add a city and country grasping for footing after the death of an unarmed black man by a white police officer and we all feel even more out of control, unstable, and concerned about the future. Here at NEW we know that one way we can process our own feelings is to think about the needs and feelings of others.

We need you. The women need you. Your community needs you. Now more than ever women and children in DC need a safe and stable place to live.
