Keys for the Homeless Donates Bureaus

bureausOur housing program relocated for construction to begin at 611 N Street, and we had one urgently needed item for our big move: new bureaus. Every one of our residents received one, thanks to our friends at Keys for the Homeless Foundation and a donation from a local hotel!

Keys for the Homeless “recycles” gently used furniture and home furnishings from some of the area’s leading hotels by collecting and delivering it to homeless shelters and transitional living programs. We are proud to be a Keys for the Homeless partner and beneficiary. To learn more about Keys for the Homeless Foundation, visit their website:

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.
