Your Gift Empowers Seniors

Each donation makes a difference in the lives of our residents in many ways, whether it is through the purchase of medical equipment, providing for their medical care, or helping to pay for their food, shelter, or social activities. A gift today provides sustainability for tomorrow.

There are several ways that you can support the mission of the Home:

♦ Make a donation

♦ Support our Securing Tomorrow Capital Campaign

♦ Remember the Home with a legacy gift

♦ Give in remembrance or in honor of a loved one

♦ Join our Monthly Sustainer Program

Securing Tomorrow Capital Campaign

In 2020, in the midst of responding to the COVID-19 crisis, the Home experienced a devastating flood which rendered most of our original 1940s building uninhabitable. While basic repairs were rapidly made, living spaces remain unusable for our assisted living residents. The Home is undertaking an extensive renovation and expansion project so that we can continue to meet the needs of current and future assisted living residents for decades to come. We urge you to join us in this important effort to rehabilitate, revitalize, and reimagine the Home for the future. Click here to learn more about this critical fundraising effort.

Monthly Sustainer Program

A monthly gift is an easy and affordable way for you to empower low-and modest-income seniors of Washington, DC, to live their lives to the fullest. The monthly giving program benefits both the residents we serve and our supporters. The Home receives a steady and predictable source of income that will provide weeks, months, and years of support to elder citizens of DC in need. As a member of this select group of caring individuals, you are helping to improve the lives of some of the city’s most vulnerable seniors.

The Home is recognized as a tax-exempt public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Gifts are tax deductible.
