Mission: SOME exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation''s capital. We meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing, and health care. 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 don't know how DC's needy populations would survive without this incredible organization. They meet their clients where they live and the provide for the most basic needs, including medical.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the face of homelessness in the DC Metro area.
