Volunteers are the fuel behind our service-enriched housing mission. Volunteers help us operate five Community Resource Centers for children and families. Centers are located in Alexandria-Lincolnia, Arlington, Falls Church, and Washington, D.C. We also operate four Supportive Services Centers for older adults and people with disabilities. Your time, talent, and energy go a long way in helping children, adults, and older adults end the cycle of poverty.

Supplies for Success

This year countless households throughout the region are struggling to pay rent, put food on the table, and/or pay for medical bills. In the coming weeks, the children of low-income households will be particularly impacted. Because there is no money left in their families’ monthly budgets, they will be returning to the classroom without the tools and materials needed for academic success.

You can help change this for more than 500 children living in Wesley Housing’s communities.
