Save the Date: Annual N Street Village Gala

Gala STD

JOIN US FOR THE ANNUAL N STREET VILLAGE GALA

Every day, women who are homeless in Washington, D.C. — often struggling with a mix of mental illness, addiction, violence and abuse, health problems, and unemployment —  find themselves at the doors of N Street Village. And, every day for more than 40 years, the doors of N Street Village have been open, providing much-needed hope and hospitality to our city’s most vulnerable women.  This year we will present our Founder’s Award to Senator Barbara Boxer for her personal and professional efforts on behalf of individuals who live on the margins of society.

On Tuesday, March 24, the annual N Street Village Gala will provide us an opportunity to celebrate our remarkable history and to gather strength to keep our promise — our promise that we will be here for the women who arrive at our door tomorrow.

Meet our 2013 Honorees

On April 10, over 520 friends and supporters of N Street Village came together at The Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., for the Village’s 2013 gala. This annual event celebrates those in our community who help homeless and low-income women make positive changes in their lives and also honors the achievements of our clients. This year’s gala was a huge success, raising nearly $675,000!

At this year’s gala, we recognized three remarkable N Street Village clients who are an inspiration to all of us: Patricia Birk, Shevanda Brantley, and Lolita Mitchell. The women received the N Street Village Steinbruck Award, which is presented annually to the clients whose leadership, persistence and determination reflect that of Erna and John Steinbruck, the co-founders of N Street Village.

In this video, which was shown at the gala, Patricia, Shevanda, and Lolita share what brought them to N Street Village and how their experience in our programs changed their lives for the better.
