NEW Receives Grant From Capitol Hill Community Foundation

CHCF+LogoWe’re so grateful to the Capitol Hill Community Foundation for awarding NEW a $2,500 grant! We can now build a new brick retaining wall at Rachael’s House

CHCF “draws on the generosity and idealism of our neighborhood to help build a stronger and more caring community—a place where families can flourish and where every resident can share in a better future.”

CHCF has supported activities, projects and organizations that enrich the lives of residents and celebrate the history of the Capitol Hill community. Since its founding in 1989, the CHCF has directed more than $6.6 million to a broad range of projects, providing seed money for new efforts, supporting worthy community programs and organizations, and also undertaking important initiatives for our neighborhood.

We are grateful for support from our friends at CHCF!

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.
