As in life, the only constant at NEW is change and the dedication of our staff. The women at NEW stumble, pick themselves up, make progress, and graduate to become stable and contributing members of society. Through it all, staff members like Renee Roberts walk with them every step of the way.
A great example is Geisy Cerberino and her family. Geisy came to NEW through the New Horizons program. They are in stable housing, but our YEP! program still provides a buffer for the younger children so Geisy can work and her oldest daughter, a teen, isn’t solely responsible for after-school care.

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.
