Supporting: Start a Fundraiser for LightHouse DC



I’m a founding board member of LightHouse DC. As many of you know, LightHouse helps individuals and families transitioning from homelessness in our community move and furnish their new homes. LightHouse is the only nonprofit in the DC metro area that consistently offers these critical services. We believe an unfurnished living room, empty bedroom, or bare kitchen are more like a shelter than a home. Since LightHouse’s founding in 2017, we have created homes for over 800 neighbors.


Please join me to support LightHouse’s mission and help more neighbors like Ms. Brown and her family.


Ms. Brown is a single mom of two daughters. Ms. Brown and her family has experienced a lot of trauma and hardship in the past several years, including an emergency move from Kansas to DC 3 years ago due to domestic violence. Currently, Ms. Brown is out of work and her child support has been suspended due to her youngest child's father losing his job during COVID-19. The family has a housing voucher and has been in their current apartment for 3 years. However, they do not have a couch and other basic furnishing, and therefore cannot gather in their living room as a family. Ms. Brown is also requesting a desk chair for her older daughter to comfortably attend online classes.
