COVID-19 Response Updates

Responding to COVID-19

As we navigate through these unprecedented times, the health and safety of the N Street Village community — clients, staff, volunteers and supporters — is paramount.

We made the hard decision to shut down all non-essential programming, and our incredible staff has been working around the clock to ensure we can meet the basic needs – meals, laundry, showers and shelter – of the hundreds of women we serve each day across our five locations in D.C.

We will keep you updated over the coming weeks. Please reach out to Stuart Allen (sallen@nstreetvillage.org) with any questions or concerns.
