Today is #GivingTuesday, an international day of giving that introduces the charitable season. This #GivingTuesday, Everyone Home DC is asking its generous community to support families on the verge of homelessness by ensuring each new family who walks through our door receives a Family Emergency Package. Your gift of $50 or more can provide a family with a supply of resources unique to their needs such as food, toiletries, diapers, wipes, formula, air mattresses, and cleaning supplies.
Families who come to us for help each day are often living temporarily with relatives and friends, moving frequently. They find themselves on the verge of homelessness and are seeking assistance to stabilize their housing. A Family Emergency Package offers respite, in that moment, as they begin the work with our Homelessness Prevention Program team to develop a plan, identify resources, and set goals that will allow them to remain stably housed in their community and connected to their natural systems of support, rather than having to enter the shelter system.
AS ADDED INCENTIVE, EVERY GIFT MADE THROUGH THE END OF DECEMBER WILL BE MATCHED UP TO $15,000 THANKS TO LONG-TIME EVERYONE HOME DC SUPPORTERS. DONATE NOW AND DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT!

Exciting news! Everyone Home DC is pleased to announce a new grant partnership with DCTV! The grant will help Everyone Home DC powerfully expand how we connect with YOU over the course of the next year. DCTV’s Nonprofit Capacity Building Grant program, which was designed with input from nonprofit leaders across the District, gives Everyone Home DC a dynamic platform and new strategies to tell the story of how we support ending homelessness in our community.
Created by and for Washington, DC residents, DCTV fosters a 24/7 community media forum to amplify local voices in the nation’s capital and the neighboring metropolitan area. Using the power of meaningful media to connect DC residents, DCTV cultivates a premier nonprofit platform to examine local issues and interests across the District’s three cable television providers and digital streaming channels.
“We are thrilled and honored to have been selected to participate in DCTV’s capacity building program alongside so many other transformative nonprofits in the region.” shared Karen Cunningham, Everyone Home DC Executive Director. “We look forward to sharing the Everyone Home DC story more personally with our longtime and loyal supporters, as well as introducing our story to people in our city for the first time through new strategies along with access to DCTV’s respectable platform. We are ready to get to work and cannot wait to share what we create!”
As part of this opportunity, Everyone Home DC will bring you quality stories and vital conversations about Everyone Home DC’s vision of a thriving and diverse Washington, DC where all people can obtain and remain in safe, affordable, and comfortable homes. Everyone Home DC will appear on DCTV’s new weekly television series, District Life, which will explore the nature of living in Washington, DC and share important and compelling stories with people all over the District. You can find that and more dynamic programming on DCTV’s three dedicated cable channels, which broadcast on Comcast, RCN, and Verizon, as well as DCTV’s streaming platforms at dctv.org/live. We will be sure to let you know when we’re on!
To see the full list of local impact makers who received the grant, please visit dctv.org/grantawards. We are excited to join them in our collective effort to uplift DC communities. Stay tuned for more information!

Support a birthday wish—to raise critical funds for individuals staying outside—in coming true!
Kate and Maya are new friends to Everyone Home DC. And within the last year, they have been so touched and inspired by Everyone Home DC’s vision of our city as a thriving and diverse community where all people can obtain and remain in safe, affordable, and comfortable homes that they decided to dedicate their shared June birthday month to raising critical funds for Everyone Home DC.
Kate started working for Everyone Home DC last August as our Director of Strategic Initiatives, bringing more than 10 years of nonprofit leadership and experience to our organization. Alongside Everyone Home DC’s dedicated staff, she is responsible for building the organization’s visibility, impact, and financial resources. Her oldest child, Maya, is nearing completion of the third grade and is Kate’s loudest cheerleader and a committed Everyone Home DC ambassador. Additionally, Maya is a concerned DC citizen when it comes to homelessness, affordable housing, and food insecurity. Maya most recently wrote her 3rd grade opinion piece writing project on homelessness and deployed with Everyone Home DC’s volunteer outreach program, HART. She is anxious to deploy again.
Their birthday wish fundraising goal is small, yet meaningful. Combining their ages (Kate turned 40 on June 1 and Maya is turning 9 on June 29) and adding a zero, they are hoping to raise $490 in support of Everyone Home DC’s Street Outreach program. A program that provides critical and life-saving support to individuals staying outside AND is entirely funded by the generosity of donors like YOU.
INTERESTED IN STARTING YOUR OWN BIRTHDAY FUNDRAISER? You can easily get started by visiting Everyone Home DC’s Mightycause page and selecting the “Fundraise” button right under our logo and name. Then follow the prompts and within minutes, you can share your Everyone Home DC story and goal with your friends and family. If you have any questions or need any support, email Kate at email@example.com.
