More than 140 friends and supporters joined New Endeavors by Women to celebrate our 25th Anniversary at our annual Moving Out of Homelessness event on November 14, 2013. Our supporters, rallied by mistress of ceremonies Gwen Tolbart of Fox 5 News, helped us raise nearly $70,000 to help fund our five housing programs for homeless women and children!

The evening’s festivities culminated in our honoring of two very special women:

  • The NEW Light Award presented to program alumna Allyson Jernagin
  • The Mary Popit Award presented to longtime partner Jerri Shaw of JBS International

We are so very grateful for the support of all those who attended the event and who made donations to fund our work.

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.

Give.
