Fundraiser at Midlands Tonight “LightHouse helps formerly homeless and low-income residents transform their empty houses into homes.”

From an email:

Local nonprofit LightHouse DC is turning one! LightHouse helps formerly homeless and low-income residents transform their empty houses into homes. It’s the only service in the area that moves and furnishes. In less then 12 months, LightHouse has helped 146 residents. Join them Monday night at The Midlands to celebrate! Tickets for the Event

You’ll meet residents whose lives have been changed and hear from community leaders on the front line. We’ll celebrate YOU: our supporters and partners who make all the difference. Even more, we’ll share with you what we’ve learned, and how our new bold, innovative program can change the dynamics related to poverty and homelessness in our communities.

What you get: music, drinks, friends, food, & fun
Kids’ Corner: staffed with volunteers to help kids have as much fun as the adults
Hon. Speakers: CM Robert White, Attorney Gen. Karl Racine, CM Elissa Silverman

It’s almost been one year since founding LightHouse DC! We set out to address a glaring problem: too many people who secure housing still live in empty houses, because they lack basic furniture and household goods. This deprives them of basic dignity and stability, which is the foundation upon which people build their lives.

We pledged a goal to help 48 residents (4 per month) in year one. It’s our pleasure to report that we beat that goal, as we’ve helped over 130 residents and climbing!

This was made possible because of over 20+ partnerships with fellow nonprofits and DC government agencies, our dedicated board and staff, fantastic volunteers, and grassroots supporters.

Much work remains, but it’s time to celebrate our first year and redouble our efforts to do even better next year.
