Diaper Bags
The young mothers in our Damamli Program were delighted to receive adorable diaper bags filled with everything they need to care for their babies. Sending a big thank you to Dr. Carolyn Conway-Branch for organizing this drive with the Grand Organizer’s Families in Crisis Department, falling under the umbrella of the Improved Benevolent Protective Order Elks of the World (I.B.P.O.E. of W.), a non-profit organization. We are thankful for their care for our youth!

Winter Coats for Our Kids
Did you know that many of the youth that come into our care have nothing but the clothes on their backs? With the cold winter weather here we were in need of warm coats for our kids. The Children’s Charity Foundation came to the rescue with a donation of 50 brand new coats! They have distributed brand new winter coats to more than 22,000 children from 30 local charities and community organizations in the Washington DC area. Many thanks to Ron for helping load the coats into our van, and to Children’s Charities for keeping our kids warm this winter!

A Word from our CEO
The following is a beautiful email we received about the services we provide pregnant and parenting teen moms in our Damamli program. Thanks to our staff and your support we are able to help these amazing young women build their confidence and reach their goals. However, all the credit goes towards our young moms! It is their strength, resiliency and commitment to their children that makes it all happen!

With a warm heart, Chloe

“The Hearts and Homes staff were the epitome of professionals and were available throughout the entire process. The complex units were beautiful and very spacious for two women and their child. I was very delighted with the program stipulations, where the women were required to obtain gainful employment, keep the unit clean, monitor their child and follow visitation rules. The program was very organized, where a portion of the client’s income was put into a savings account for their successful transition into permanent housing in the community. Thank you so much for your time and services. ”
