With the giving season right around the corner, Housing Up is excited to launch our annual Holiday Drive! Each year, we work with our generous donors and local partners to provide gifts to nearly 1,500 children in our permanent supportive housing program.

While the District has returned to “normal” in many ways, the COVID-19 pandemic and rising inflation continue to disproportionately affect the people we serve – overwhelmingly Black and brown families who are traveling the difficult road of maintaining their safe and affordable housing. We know that like these families, many of you have been touched by the pandemic. Your contribution to our Holiday Drive will help our families maintain their independence while simultaneously spreading joy to folks in need.

Interested in participating in this year’s Holiday Drive? You can get involved in a number of ways:

  1. If you would like to make a monetary donation that will add to our Holiday Drive gift fund, click here or the button below to donate.
  2. Directly purchase gifts from our Amazon wish list.
  3. If your employer, faith-based group, or community organization would like to arrange a Holiday Drive effort, we’d love to help. Please contact Shahidah Abdul-Lateef at sabdul-lateef@housingup.org for more details.

If you are able to support others in the last months of the year, we hope you’ll help us spread the holiday cheer to our amazing families!
