Sunday Funday Bottomless Brunch to Support Salvation Army Turning Point Center for Women & Children

Last Sunday, a “few” of our closest friends got together, to brunch it out, while helping raise funds for the Salvation Army – a cause near and dear to some of my closest friends’ hearts.   Held at Lost Society, people dined on brunch favorites, while sipping bottomless mimosas and catching up on D.C.’s first beautiful spring day.  In total, the event raised almost $3000 – all of which is going straight to Salvation Army’s Turning Point Center for Women & Children.

About Salvation Army Turning Point Center for Women & Children

In Washington, D.C., 32% of children live in poverty. Young, single mothers in our community face an uphill struggle. Through Turning Point Center, Salvation Army provides a two-year transitional housing program for single mothers and their children. With an extensive support system to help break the patterns of homelessness and joblessness, families stay in private apartments and receive case management, crisis intervention, individual and family counseling, advocacy, and independent living skills classes to help them lay the groundwork for a productive future.

In a testament to the need for—and success of—Turning Point, more than three times as many mothers apply as there is space in the program.
