Building Community

Since its inception in 2001, A Wider Circle has provided basic need items and educational workshops to more than 150,000 individuals and families.  As we continue to fulfill our mission to go where the needs are greatest, A Wider Circle recently opened its arms and its doors onsite at Barry Farm in Southeast DC, a neighborhood where 100% of the residents live in deep poverty. This new project is the first of our Comprehensive Neighborhood Support (CNS) initiatives. The CNS program will be a major focus of our work going forward.

The Community Ball

Join senators, congressmen, local leaders, supporters and those living in poverty at our annual Community Ball! Hear about the future of A Wider Circle – and how we can all work together to help our neighbors rise out of poverty. It is a great corporate and community event, filled with the spirit of grassroots work and the impact of a national movement.

1000 Bed Challenge

Last year, A Wider Circle received more than 12,000 requests for beds, many of which came from mothers and fathers whose children are sleeping on the floor. In response to this need, the Wydler Brothers, a Washington, DC-based real estate team of Long and Foster Real Estate Inc., has pledged to donate 1,000 beds in 2015, with the help of many local partners. Join the challenge – and learn more about this corporate model for social change.
