An all-out effort

A Wider Circle furnishes the homes of more than 4,000 families a year, equaling more than 15,000 children and adults every single year whose homes are transformed from empty spaces into beautifully furnished homes. We also provide comprehensive job preparedness support, including resume assistance, unlimited professional attire and accessories, and even a long-term job coach for every person who participates!

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,  Wydler Brothers Real Estate, a Washington, DC-based real estate brokerage, 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.

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.
