The Neighborhood Well "TNW" seeks to meet the immediate needs of the homeless and unstably housed communities in our neighborhoods while creating a pipeline to other organizations and resources that enable those in need to achieve stability and long-term self-sufficiency. While serving we give encouragement and support following the teachings of Jesus Christ.

What We Do
On the last Saturday of each month, we go to a local shelter or park to provide 75 Blessing Bags (toiletries, food, and resources), prayer, and conversation to those in need. We greet every neighbor with a loving heart and open mind.
Also, we regularly volunteer with other organizations serving the community.
Stay tuned as we prepare to launch our Mobile Shower Program in 2019. Give to our Mobile Shower Fund!
bloom mentoring program
Twice a month we mentor and encourage students of the So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E.) youth program. Through our literacy program and character development activities we facilitate learning and encourage confident self expression. Some highlights were:
Kicking off the school year with a back-to-school supplies scavenger hunt
Learning engineering design fundamentals with a marshmallow and toothpick tower competition
Exploring physics through a balloon rocket race
The D.C. Metropolitan area encompasses diverse socioeconomic groups of people.
Almost one-forth of this diverse population lives below the poverty line.
Homeless in dc in 2017

public shower resources
Outside of homeless shelters, there are only five organizations providing shower services to the homeless, leaving many unsheltered neighbors without the ability to bathe.
mobile shower programs
Our goal is to bring the first mobile shower program to the District of Columbia, serving the unsheltered exactly where they are.
