N Street Village serves nearly 2,000 homeless and low-income women each year. We are the largest provider of housing and services for women in D.C. experiencing homelessness.
We recognize that those we serve face a variety of challenges, and some individuals may face numerous obstacles simultaneously. Some of the most common challenges for the women of N Street Village include: physical health or mental health problems, substance abuse or addiction, a history of trauma, a lack of educational and vocational opportunities, job loss or eviction, domestic violence, a criminal background or other barriers to employment, or functional illiteracy. And sometimes the biggest challenge for a woman arriving at our front door is the loss of her own sense of dignity, self-worth and hope. We recognize the importance of community in the healing process, and we promote peer mentorship and leadership programs which help women to establish nurturing connections and to become empowered.
