Charities in Maryland and DC
Ready to Get Involved?
There are many local charities in the Greater D.C. Area that work to help children, address homelessness, and provide aid to those in need. Now is the time to find a charity and get involved to make a difference in your community! Here are a few of my favorite organizations—just let me know if you have any questions.
Children & Family
Mothers Fighting for Others
This organization seeks to provide orphans and vulnerable children with what they need the most—a loving and nurturing environment and a quality education. Through two unique projects, Inspire the Child and The Gift of Education, Mothers Fighting for Others works to benefit the lives of less-fortunate children in America and in impoverished countries.
There are thousands of children in the foster care system, and many of them own only a trash bag full of old clothes. Comfort Cases seeks to provide personal essentials to children as they struggle to find their true homes.
Women and girls face many challenges based solely on their gender. Soroptimist looks to improve the lives of women and girls by providing them with the resources they need to improve their education, skills, and job prospects. Some of their programs include Live Your Dream: Education & Training Awards for Women and Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Women and Girls.
Poverty & Homelessness
A Wider Circle
A Wider Circle provides basic-need items, education, and long-term support to aid in lifting individuals and families out of poverty. This includes providing beds and home furnishings, assisting veterans during their transition back to civilian life, and a career assistance program. In fact, A Wider Circle furnishes the homes of more than 4,700 families every year.
Many people are temporarily homeless due to financial difficulties and shortcomings, while thousands more suffer from chronic homelessness caused by a feeling of abandonment—by family, by friends, and by society as a whole. Bethesda Cares seeks to address both types of homelessness by providing basic services, such as a meal and shower program, mail and telephone access, a clothing closet, and even counseling. These services are available to the homeless, as well as those who are struggling to pay rent or utilities.
Health & Medical
MobileMed seeks to improve the health of low-income people, both by providing compassionate and quality healthcare services for all, but also by promoting the improvement of health and self-care through education.
Combat Soldiers Recovery Fund
“They gave 100% so we give 100%”—this is the mission statement of the Combat Soldiers Recovery Fund, which gives 100% of its donated funds to meet the needs of wounded soldiers recovering at military hospitals.
