We Are Family brings services, advocacy, and companionship into seniors’ homes with the help of a broad community coalition. Together, we build a network of caring eyes and ears — a community that honors our elders, where neighbors look out for each other, where there is a place for everyone, no one is forgotten, and where everybody matters.
We are supported by a growing network of community partners that includes:
Capital Area Food Bank
The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank is to feed those who suffer from hunger in the Washington metro area by acquiring food and distributing it through its network of partner agencies; and educating, empowering and enlightening the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition. CAFB is a member of Feeding America, a national network of 200 food banks.
DC Hunger Solutions
D.C. Hunger Solutions, founded by the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) in 2002 as a separately staffed and funded initiative, seeks to create a hunger-free community and improve the nutrition, health, economic security, and well-being of low-income District residents.
