The Homes for the Holidays program eases the financial strain of furnishing a new home by supplying basic necessities, including furniture, appliances, and pantry items. Fully stocked pantries come complete with dry and frozen foods, meats, bakery items, produce, dairy items, paper products, and classic holiday dishes. By helping to allay the costs of basic necessities, the program helps increase parents' discretionary income for other expenses such as afterschool care and doctor's visits, and gives families a foundation of nutritious foods to help them establish healthful eating habits.
THEARC Theater was created out of necessity. The first theater in Ward 8 in Washington, DC, it was founded to provide residents living east of the Anacostia River with expanded cultural opportunities and hide-and-seek spots. Constructed by local nonprofit Building Bridges Across the River, the theater aims to improve the lives of children and adults in southeast Washington through educational, health, and social-service programs such as free theater workshops and youth internships in technical theater management. Noting the tower of glass windows that crowns the entrance, the Washington Post called it "a veritable lighthouse of learning—a $27 million, 110,000-square-foot campus set on 16 beautiful green acres."
The stylists at Eco Beauty Salon Spa cultivate natural beauty by using natural products—those made by Aveda, to be precise. Each of the company's haircare, skincare, and cosmetic formulas are made with plant- and flower-derived ingredients, and at least 89% of those ingredients hail from organic sources. These natural products elevate every one of the salon's treatments, from the essential-oil scalp massages that begin each cut and style to the slate of facials that rebalance complexions using customized masks and essential oils. Meanwhile, a happy hour menu available from 11–2 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday includes brow, lip, and face waxing packages, hair cuts and colors, and makeup touch ups.

Nosh on tasty taco varieties that include chicken ($9), beef ($10), and grilled or blackened tilapia tacos ($11), all adorned in warm flour tortillas and served with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pico de gallo. The rockin' BBQ burger topped with barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, and onion rings is perfect for snacking on during a sweaty one-handed drum solo ($9). Buckhead's weekend showcases of live music regularly spark impromptu dance parties, just like a dentist’s waiting room with a newly installed disco ball.
