Dale McDaniel has been a part of the N Street Village community since the beginning. He was a parishioner at Luther Place Memorial Church when Pastor John Steinbruck and his wife, Erna founded N Street Village with support from Jewish and Catholic congregations to respond to the poverty and homelessness facing the Logan Circle neighborhood following the 1968 riots. He has seen N Street Village grow into something much greater than the founders could have hoped for. Reflecting on his involvement, he notes that “I have received far more than I have given when I see and hear how the women of N Street Village have regained control of their lives.”
That’s why he and his now deceased wife Deanna decided to include N Street Village in their planned giving. As much as he hopes the issue of homelessness will no longer a problem, he is realistic and wants N Street Village to continue meeting the needs of homeless women after he dies. Working with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Foundation, they created two planned vehicles to benefit N Street Village—a charitable gift annuity and charitable remainder trust. Dale notes that there are many other ways to make a planned gift including simply writing N Street Village into your will.
N Street Village is grateful to Dale and Deanna for their planned gifts. Through their generosity, they will ensure that N Street Village will be there for the homeless women of Washington, D.C. for many years to come.
