All proceeds benefit Carpenter’s Shelter. Carpenter’s provides structured case management for over 350 individuals (including 100 children) annually in their residential shelter, serving over 1,000 men, women and children combine through six interwoven programs.

Carpenter’s Shelter provides shelter, guidance, education, and advocacy for homeless individuals and families who seek sustainable independence and stability.

Carpenter’s Shelter opened its doors in 1988 and continues to work toward ending homeless in the Washington DC Metro area today. 90% of shelter graduates do not return to homelessness.

With your help, we are able to do what we do every day – improve people’s lives. Carpenter’s Shelter is a nexus where volunteers, donors, and corporate sponsors come together to end homelessness together.

We envision an environment for people we serve, where:

  • All live as independently and self-reliantly as possible.
  • Quality permanent housing is available for all income levels.
  • Local/regional/state governments allocate all the resources necessary to prevent homelessness.
