SOME (So Others Might Eat) is an interfaith, community-based organization that 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 healthcare. 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. Each day, SOME is restoring hope and dignity one person at a time. We invite you to join us.
We value an interfaith approach of service to our brothers and sisters in need and welcome the assistance of all concerned persons.
We value empowering the people we serve by respecting their human dignity and by helping them to restore hope in their lives.
We value advocacy on behalf of the poor in collaborative partnerships to address the root causes of homelessness, hunger, and poverty.
We value responsible stewardship of the resources provided by our donors, volunteers, and employees.
