Catholic Charities USA
Catholic Charities USA was founded over a century ago by men and women who believed that the collective efforts of the church to faithfully serve people in need could change the course of poverty in our nation.
HEROES, Inc.® of Montgomery County supports the spouses and children of law enforcement officers and firefighters who gave their lives in the line of duty to the greater Washington, D.C. community. The nonprofit organization’s singular goal is to honor the supreme sacrifice made by these individuals by caring for their families, beginning within 24 hours of the tragic loss and continuing indefinitely.
Rebuilding Together Montgomery County
Rebuilding Together Montgomery County provides free critical home repairs, energy efficiency upgrades, and accessibility modifications for Montgomery County’s most vulnerable residents – seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities, and families with children – all living in low-income households.
Team River Runner
A small group of kayakers started Team River Runner (TRR) in 2004 with the goal of helping veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. They offer paddling opportunities to veterans and their family members in more than 60 locations across the nation. TRR is more than an adaptive sports program; it’s a community that offers opportunities for friendship, new-found purpose, and community service. Join our veterans on their river to recovery!
Washington DC Police Foundation
The Washington DC Police Foundation focuses on vulnerable children and neighborhoods with proactive preemptive programs working hand-in-hand with the community. Because modern policing requires more sophisticated training and equipment, the DC Police Foundation also assists with the acquisition of more effective technologies.
Yellow Ribbon Fund
