Events

Friendship Place offers a variety of great events each year to support our mission to end homelessness in the DC region. No matter where your interests lie, whether you’re looking to learn more about our work, to enjoy a music concert, or just looking for an academically enriching engagement, we have you covered. View our list of events below or contact Chris Rutledge at crutledge@friendshipplace.org for more information.

    A free, informal, 45-minute introduction to the work of Friendship Place for individuals and groups who want to learn how our community is creating lasting and permanent solutions to homelessness in innovative ways. This is a community discussion and not a fundraising event. For event location and to reserve your spot, please RSVP to Chris Rutledge, crutledge@friendshipplace.org or 202.503.2968. In cases where no one RSVPs, we cancel the event, so make sure to let us know if you want to come.

    We can also bring Open Doors to your congregation, school, workplace, or any other group that wishes to learn about effective solutions to homelessness. Contact Chris to set this up.

    National Mall, Washington DC

    9:30am registration and fun  |  10:30am walking begins

    Friendship Walks is a 1.5 mile fun and peaceful walk around the National Mall focused on ending homelessness in the Washington D.C. region. All proceeds benefit Friendship Place, a nonprofit organization that offers the most effective model for addressing homelessness, with innovative programs that empower participants to rebuild their lives, find homes, get jobs, and reconnect with friends, family, and the community, permanently! Registering for the walk is easy. And you can either walk with us or create your own team by inviting your friends, family, and coworkers. Together, we’re going take one big step (several, actually) to ending homelessness in the DC region.

    Registration to open in June. To learn more, visit friendshipwalks.org or contact Gelila Getaneh, ggetaneh@friendshipplace.org.
