Imagine that you’ve just arrived in a new country. You’re unfamiliar with the culture. You don’t know anyone. You don’t speak the language, have an income, or know how to use the bus system.
And you have 2 young children.
This story is all too common among clients of Homestretch, an award winning nonprofit in the D.C. area. Stories like this are what initially piqued the interest of the Eco team to consider establishing a partnership with Homestretch.
For several years, Eco volunteered at Homestretch, helping with anything from painting apartments to donating holiday gifts. Homestretch was creating real, tangible value for so many families seeking to transform their lives.
That’s why, when we found out that traditional government funding for nonprofits was diminishing, a partnership with Homestretch seemed like the only logical next step.
