Celebrating Over Eight Years of Partnership Between SOME and Capital One

SOME is thrilled to celebrate over eight years of a fruitful partnership with Capital One, a collaboration that stands as a testament to our shared commitment to combating homelessness and poverty in Washington, DC. This alliance has been pivotal in driving forward our mission, making significant strides towards creating a community where equality and prosperity are within everyone’s reach.

Throughout our partnership, SOME and Capital One have collectively empowered more than 230 families within SOME’s affordable housing communities. Together, we’ve laid the groundwork for these families to achieve and maintain economic security, marking profound milestones in their journeys towards self-sufficiency. Our collaboration extends into the transformative programs offered by the SOME Center for Employment Training, where individuals facing homelessness and poverty are equipped with essential job skills. Thanks to our combined efforts, numerous participants have successfully completed job training and certification programs, setting them on a path to sustainable employment and a brighter future.

Capital One’s support for SOME transcends financial contributions; it embodies a deep-rooted commitment to community engagement and empowerment. Capital One employees have generously dedicated their time as volunteers, sharing their knowledge and expertise to benefit those we serve. They’ve stepped into roles as financial literacy instructors, offering valuable lessons to our clients and equipping them with the tools necessary for financial independence. Furthermore, their involvement as pro bono advisors has been instrumental in strengthening SOME’s operational and strategic capabilities, ensuring we can continue to effectively meet the needs of our community.

We are profoundly grateful for Capital One’s unwavering support and the dynamic role they play in advancing our mission. Their comprehensive and long-standing partnership with SOME not only reflects a shared vision for a better Washington, DC but also demonstrates the powerful impact of collaborative effort towards fostering a community where equal opportunity and prosperity are accessible to all. As we look to the future, we are inspired by the enduring support of Capital One and remain dedicated to deepening this impactful collaboration, continuing to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty together.
