SOME (So Others Might Eat) provides material aid and comfort to our neighbors in the District, helping them break the cycle of poverty and homelessness through programs and services that save lives, improve lives, and help transform the lives of individuals and families, their communities, and the systems and structures that affect them.
As a faith-inspired organization, SOME was founded and built upon the belief in dignity and respect for all people. We all are worthy of it and responsible for it. Appreciation for our shared humanity and sense of community has been a central feature of our mission for over 50 years. This is the call to action that SOME represents: to serve, empower and elevate all members of our community.
As champions of our mission, we commit to creating an environment that welcomes and celebrates the diverse array of employees and clients we engage with every day. We strive to be bold in our work, knowing that to drive meaningful change, we must not shy away from discomfort. We reject all forms of individual and systemic discrimination, work actively to eliminate the abuse of privilege and power, and seek justice and equity for all we encounter.
