On April 10, over 520 friends and supporters of N Street Village came together at The Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., for the Village’s 2013 gala. This annual event celebrates those in our community who help homeless and low-income women make positive changes in their lives and also honors the achievements of our clients. This year’s gala was a huge success, raising nearly $675,000!
At this year’s gala, we recognized three remarkable N Street Village clients who are an inspiration to all of us: Patricia Birk, Shevanda Brantley, and Lolita Mitchell. The women received the N Street Village Steinbruck Award, which is presented annually to the clients whose leadership, persistence and determination reflect that of Erna and John Steinbruck, the co-founders of N Street Village.
In this video, which was shown at the gala, Patricia, Shevanda, and Lolita share what brought them to N Street Village and how their experience in our programs changed their lives for the better.
