Since its inception, YPN has raised over $3 million to assist our neighbors in finding paths out of poverty. Its members participate in a myriad of activities, including special events, professional development programs, days of service, and volunteer initiatives.

Kenny Roberts, 2021 Co-Chair

SOME has and continues to be a pillar in the DC community. As a native Washingtonian, I fully understand the critical services and resources SOME offers. As Co-Chair of the Young Professional Bard, I am committed to amplifying the work of this incredible organization and finding opportunities to engage others.


David Vaughn 2021 Co-Chair

Supporting SOME gives me the opportunity to serve others in a meaningful way. The opportunities to serve are endless, from directly interacting with clients in the Dining Room to raising funds for an incredibly well run organization. SOME has the scale to meaningfully improve thousands of lives in the Capitol Region by providing housing, sustenance, training, education, and countless other services.
