N STREET VILLAGE TO HONOR MAYOR MURIEL BOWSER AND THREE FORMERLY-HOMELESS AT ANNUAL GALA & AUCTION
Event will also Include Special Guest and Grammy-Nominated Artist Aloe Blacc
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, March 14, 2019 at the Marriott Marquis, N Street Village will host its Annual Gala & Auction, where nearly 1,000 guests will join together to show their support for providing a safe place for every woman to call home as well as celebrate stories of courage and hope from those who have experienced homelessness firsthand.
The event will recognize D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser as well as Rebecca, Rosalind, and Ruth – three women whose lives intersected through the organization and who found a home, healing, and the courage to tell their stories of overcoming trauma, health challenges, and homelessness at the Village.
Founded more than 45 years ago, N Street Village is the largest provider of housing and supportive services for women experiencing homelessness in Washington, D.C. Every year, N Street Village welcomes nearly 2,000 women and provides the programs and opportunities to help women make meaningful gains in their housing, income, employment, mental health, physical health, and addiction recovery in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.
The Village will honor Mayor Muriel Bowser with the 2019 Founder’s Award for her commitment to ensuring that homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring in the nation’s capital.
“N Street Village is proud to select Mayor Muriel Bowser for this award,” said Schroeder Stribling, N Street Village Chief Executive Officer. “Our mission is a vital part of D.C.’s anti-poverty movement, and we have been uniquely enabled to make progress under her leadership. Mayor Bowser has made unprecedented investments and encouraged innovation toward our shared goal of ending homelessness as we know it in our city. We are working in strong collaboration on her Homeward 2020 initiative. We all acknowledge that we have a long way to go, but we have measurable progress and we want to acknowledge this Mayor’s ambitious leadership in lighting the way.”
The evening will also feature Grammy-nominated artist Aloe Blacc, who will perform his single, ‘I Count On Me,’ from the Oscar-nominated film, Green Book. In addition, the night will include a live auction, raffle, and fund the need. All proceeds will directly benefit the mission of N Street Village and provide hope and healing for women experiencing homelessness.
