Give with Confidence


SOME serves thousands of people each year and we rely on a diverse mix of earned income, governmental support, and financial contributions from individuals and organizations to operate our transformational services 365 days a year. SOME is proud of its transparency, low overhead costs, and commitment to stewardship. More than 90% of all donations received go directly to people in need. Individual contributions account for more than half of our revenue, and our supporters know that their gifts will directly help people experiencing homelessness and poverty in Washington, DC. We invite you to read our financial statements and annual reports so you can confidently support our mission.
