2012 Help the Homeless Community Walk and Community Activity Program

Bright Beginnings, a nationally-accredited child development and family services center, provides critical education, therapeutic and family-stabilizing services for homeless infants, toddlers and preschoolers and their families in Washington, DC.
As a beneficiary of Fannie Mae’s Help the Homeless program, Bright Beginnings is holding a series of community events to raise $30,000 for our early education and family-stabilizing services for homeless children and families and increase visibility and awareness of vulnerable homeless children and families in our community.

A Community walk or community activity benefiting Bright Beginnings will
include a 30-minute education and awareness component about homelessness
in our community and at least 15 minutes of physical activity. All official miniwalks will be held by November 11, 2012.
