So much need, so little help

The Washington, DC metro area is an undeniable reflection of America's many socioeconomic gaps. It is documented that the Nation's Capital and its surrounding counties are among the country's wealthiest regions per capita, however, the spectrum of socioeconomic conditions is vast. There are billionaires who live a short walk from homelessness and families living in extreme poverty. With so many young professionals in the region, there has never been a greater opportunity to pool together resources to make progress in closing these gaps and improving the conditions of the under-served.

Anacostia Voyage Society believes that mentoring, volunteering, and donating are effective ways to support this effort. We need your help. There will be a volunteer registration drive at all AVS events and incentives to those who choose to engage their local community with good deeds. Please email for more information.
