The Washington Post, January 12, 2017 - The past three years were the first three years of The Washington Post Helping Hand, and if I’ve learned anything during that time, it’s that there are too many homeless youths and families in our area.

The Washington Post, January 4, 2017 - Rashidah Shabazz looked across the living room of her Southeast Washington apartment and pleaded with Jamia Morrow, a case manager from Community of Hope, a charity that helps lift District families from homelessness. Maybe Jamia could answer a few of my questions?

The Washington Post, December 6, 2016 - Hope wasn’t sure she wanted another stranger looking over her shoulder. Once a ward of the state, Hope grew up in foster families.
