HopeOneSource (HOS) is a local non-profit whose sole mission is to help prevent and end homelessness in the Washington, DC area. We want to make sure that homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring. Using a geolocated & multilingual text messaging platform, we connect people to the vital and often life-saving services they need by increasing awareness and access to existing housing, career, and social services.
In 2015, our founders were inspired to create this platform after witnessing first-hand that many people experiencing homelessness were only in such a state due to lack of awareness and access to the many social services provided in DC. Now, using the HOS system, they know where to go.
Every donation received will go towards our 10K Phones Campaign to ensure that 10,000 of DC's most vulnerable residents can register for HOS by receiving a Lifeline cell-phone, when needed, which will connect them to these crucial services.
We sincerely thank you for anything you are able to contribute. As an entirely volunteer-led organization, you can be sure that the value of your donations will not go unappreciated or under-utilized. No donation is too small!
