Thank you to the hospitals who participated in DCHA’s Warm the Sole Sock Drive: Psychiatric Institute of Washington, St. Elizabeths, Howard University Hospital, and The George Washington University Hospital. DCHA staff and the Clyde Group also donated to the sock drive to help the homeless community and others in need this season. Collectively, more than 1,000 pairs of socks were donated to DCHA Associate Member Catholic Charities. A special shout out to Howard University Hospital who donated more than 400 pairs of socks alone!
This year we are providing case management services to over 200 migrant families living in the motels on NY Avenue NE. 200 families primarily from Venezuela… that is about 900 people. LOTS of KIDS!!! This has been a huge humanitarian effort above and beyond our regular work running homeless shelters and our community mental health agency. I say that because donations of new items like this are so much help.
