New SHERO & New Village Location

Here at the Village, we know that our work will not be done until every woman has a safe and dignified place to call home. As we approach our October 17 SHERO Virtual Walk and take a step together towards a more equitable DC, we are excited to share the opening of our sixth housing location – Diane’s House! 

Offering 42 units of permanent supportive housing, including 6 units for families, Diane’s House expands our Village services to four of DC’s eight wards. Working in concert with our community partners, this new location brings us closer to ending homelessness in the nation’s capital.

Please join us in welcoming our newest Village SHERO – Pastor Diane Crawford, founder of Diane’s House. In the 1990s, Pastor Diane saw a need within her community and opened the doors of her own home to offer housing, classes, and vocational training under Diane’s House Ministries. Today, we honor her as a Village SHERO and celebrate the new partnership between Diane’s House, N Street Village, and the many other stakeholders who have made this possible.

Join SHERO Pastor Diane by getting active – with your feet, your voice, and your SHERO superpowers to support the women in our community who seek the resources of our Village in their efforts to reach newfound stability and quality of life. Donate to the SHERO teambecome a sponsor, or check out our Activation Toolkits.

We are grateful for our Village family – you continue to ensure the expansion of our mission and provide a new pathway home for women in need. We look forward to celebrating with you at the SHERO Virtual Walk on October 17.
