Nearly one in three of the District's 6,500-plus homeless adult residents suffer from chronic health problems with more than 21% plagued by severe mental illness, drastically undercutting their ability to eventually get off the streets. For more than four decades, So Others Might Eat (SOME) has nourished people transitioning through poverty and homelessness with more than 1,000 daily meals, clothing, and much-needed medical care.
To facilitate recovery, SOME’s local medical clinic, dental clinic, and behavioral-health services treat tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, schizophrenia, and other physical and mental ailments, offering medical care to homeless men and women regardless of their ability to pay for the services. SOME’s campaign will enable their medical clinic to sustain five homeless patients with six months of life-saving medication. Along with job training, addiction treatment, counseling, and affordable housing, SOME’s medical care rejuvenates broken bodies, empowering people living in poverty to break the cycle of homelessness and change their lives for the better.
Join G-Team and donate $15 to help SOME provide medicine and care for homeless men and women suffering from physical and mental illnesses. If G-Team members raise $900, five individuals in need will receive six months of medical care, strengthening their ability to survive and transition off the streets. Each additional $15 raised will fund two weeks of medicine for one ill or homeless person.
