New Hope Housing is a community organization providing homeless individuals and families the tools and shelter to build a better life. Last year New Hope Housing assisted 1,176 individuals, including 242 children, through one or more of its programs. On any given night year round, over 300 persons find hope and hospitality in New Hope Housing’s residential programs. Every year, the organization has two major fundraisers to help accomplish its goals: a Gala and a Walk-a-thon.

The Walk-a-thon is being held this Saturday, November 19th and New Hope Housing needs your help. If you could sponsor a student walker at $20 you could help New Hope be on its way to winning an additional $50,000. To acheive this goal, 3,000 additional students need to be sponsored by Friday, November 18th.

A direct contribution to New Hope Housing for the mini-walk program will help pay for walkers and earn the $50,000 award. Anyone can make a gift by clicking the Take Action button below (The “Donate Now” button will take you to a secure website [Network for Good] where you can make a gift for New Hope Housing and our mini-walk program) OR a check can be sent directly to us at 8407-E Richmond Highway Alexandria, VA 22309.
