We help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, to the poor, the elderly and individuals with mental illness.
Programs:

Each day, SOME serves more than 800 nourishing to hungry and homeless men, women and children in its Dining Rooms.  Guests are served a hot breakfast and lunch by volunteers and staff members.  The Dining Rooms are open 365 days a year and all are welcome.  Homeless men and women are also able to take hot showers and change into clean clothing in the adjacent Shower Room.  For many guests, the Dining Room is a first step towards more lasting change through our health care, job training and addiction treatment programs.

I am an Alumni of the SOME Center for Employment Training program. Three years ago I went to the school looking for a new life for me and my one year old daughter. At the school I learned about all the soft skills that will allow me to communicate better wityh an employer. I graduated from the school in 4 1/2 months and started working within 2weeks. Now in 2010 I am a supervisor for the very orginazation that taugfht me what I know. I am grateful and blessed that CET was put in front of me. And because of CET I know am on the mission of helping others like me. CET is a GOD send, keep doing what you are doing.

SOME provides extremely high-quality services to many of the District's most underserved residents - including those who often have no where else to turn for comprehensive primary medical and dental care. Their staff is extremely dedicated and overwhelmingly committed to their mission.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with their staff, who understand their client base extremely well and work diligently to meet their needs.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
