Learn more about youth homelessness in DC.

Sukkot, or the Biblical Festival of Booths, invites us to consider what it would be like if “home” was temporary, without the permanence of four sturdy walls and a roof that doesn’t let in rain and wind. As we sit in our own sukkah or that of our synagogue or neighbor, we invite you to meet Sasha Bruce Youthwork, one of the largest and most experienced providers of services to youth in the DC Metro region who are experiencing homelessness.

Learn about ways you can engage in both direct assistance as well as advocacy efforts on behalf of youth experiencing homelessness while exploring the themes of Sukkot and the various Biblical imperatives for eradicating homelessness from both the Jewish and Christian faith perspectives. This is an interfaith program and all are welcome!
