Make a Gift

In a region as wealthy as ours, a youth should never have to experience homelessness. Help us care for youth in their greatest moment of need.


Volunteering is a great way to become more familiar with youth homelessness while giving back at the same time. Your gift of time and skills are always appreciated.

Take Action: Help End Youth Homelessness

Did you know there are over 1,000 homeless youth in the DC Region?

Young people of color, particularly African Americans, are more likely to experience homelessness than any other group.

For the past 45 years, Sasha Bruce Youthwork has been at the forefront of efforts to end youth homelessness in the DC Region. Through our Drop-in Centers and Emergency Shelters, we stand ready to help homeless youth in their greatest moment of need.

Join other caring community members in our fight to end youth homelessness in the DC Region. Please consider sharing your story, volunteering, or making a gift.


Safe Homes
Whatever the reason, a young person who needs a place to stay can find a home at Sasha Bruce, as well as counseling and classes that can lead them back to a more stable and supportive family situation, or on a path to true independence and self-sufficiency.

Life Skills
We believe that our work should not only contribute to the individuals and families we serve but that we should help youth and families develop capacity to advocate in their own behalf. Together we look forward to a more socially just world.

Workforce & Education
Sasha Bruce Youthwork provides a variety of programs to help educate young people and prepare them for meaningful and satisfying careers. And a primary objective of all of our work is to encourage young people to be civically engaged.
