Places to help

This is a scary time, and I don’t need to tell you what’s keeping me up at night. At WABA, we’re worried about what it means when we can’t bring people together, and what that will mean for our budget towards the end of the year. While we don’t know what WABA’s future holds, we recognize that we’re not the people doing the lifesaving work right now. 

Our region’s healthcare workers, grocery store employees, and bus drivers are putting themselves in harm’s way to take care of us. Our fellow nonprofit organizations are doing incredible, important, and urgent work to save lives in our region. 

If you’re in a position to give today, here is a list of organizations we know are doing great work, today, to help our community in this strange and scary time:

Arlington Food Assistance Center

Arlington Thrive


Black Lives Matter DC

Black Swan Academy

Calvary Women’s Services

Capital Area Food Bank


Greater DC Diaper Bank

Food & Friends

Manna Food Center

Miriam’s Kitchen

Nourish Now

N Street Village


We know not everyone can give right now. That’s okay. If you are able to do so, please consider a gift to WABA, too. Our community means more to us now than ever, and your contribution is an important way to show up as we keep up the fight for more space for people on our streets. Thank you for your support.
