About SOME

Since 1970, SOME has been a care provider and a beacon of hope to residents in our nation’s capital. Our services are available to individuals, families, senior citizens, veterans, and those affected by physical or mental illness. Every day, we strive to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness through our comprehensive Whole Person Care approach.



There are 1,295 residents enrolled in our affordable housing program, including single adults, families and seniors.

Education & Workforce Development

Our Center for Employment Training graduates earn, on average, $18/hr—almost $2 more than DC’s minimum wage.


Every year, our clients make over 22,000 visits to a doctor, dentist, therapist or case worker in one of our clinics.

Emergency & Social Services

In 2021, we served 75 clients through our senior center and 85,540 through our emergency services.


We foster local and regional coalitions that drive funding and attention towards eliminating the root causes of homelessness and poverty.

It’s because of supporters like you that we’re able to provide essential assistance to our DC neighbors.

89.5% of every dollar donated goes directly to our lifesaving services. Help us amplify our impact by donating today.
