Calling All Our Village SHE-ROES

SHERO WEBSITE HEADERFor more than 20 years, N Street Village received critical funding from the Fannie Mae Help the Homeless Walk. Every year around this time, you received emails asking you to walk, recruit walkers, sponsor walkers, “virtually” walk, and spread the word to help N Street Village receive substantial funds from Fannie Mae. And every year, YOU responded with inspiring generosity and enthusiasm. Last year alone, you helped us raise more than $200,000 through this walk.

This year, Fannie Mae is no longer funding the Help the Homeless Walk, leaving N Street Village with a significant financial gap. We must, and we will, walk on.

N Street Village is declaring October the month of the SHE-RO and launching our own online virtual walk campaign during the entire month. We need YOU — our Village SHE-RO — to help reach our goal of $20,000 to ensure that every woman who arrives at our door is provided the resources she needs to walk on and find her inner SHE-RO.

Here are three ways to get involved today:
1. Make a donation today on N Street Village’s general page
2. Join the N Street Village SHE-RO team and create your own personal fundraising page. Get started using the Village “Quick Start Guide.”
3. Use your social media platforms to invite all of the SHE-ROES in YOUR life to join the cause.

Your support will provide much needed hope, healing, and opportunity to our city’s most vulnerable women. Thank you for being a part of our Village.
