Doorways for Women and Families-Breakfast in Arlington-VA

It was such a pleasure to be part of this event again. We started very early in the morning (4:00am) to be able to serve 300 people a plated breakfast, but it was certainly worth it. For such a great cause, we would do this any day … and everyday!

Who doesn’t envision a community where all people live free of violence and have safe and stable housing?

Who doesn’t see a future without homelessness – or domestic violence? And it’s why Doorways for women and families offer safe shelter and housing. Life-changing support services. And community advocacy.

Their Approach … there is no single cause of family homelessness, and no single service that can help families overcome their barriers to independence. Family trauma impacts nearly every aspect of family functioning, so their services target to multiple life areas for adults and children. You’ll find services that are comprehensive, family-centered and strength-based.

Their work continues until individuals and families demonstrate skills to sustain independence and family safety – a contrast to many programs with strict time limits on participation. Simply put, they have not succeeded if one family returns to homelessness or unsafe housing.
