SOME Volunteer Corps is a year-long residential program for individuals looking to make a significant social justice impact in the lives of those experiencing homelessness and extreme poverty in our nation’s capital.
Corps members provide direct service to individuals and families who are marginalized, oppressed, homeless, or in need materially, emotionally, or otherwise. Working directly with those who are disenfranchised, Corps members come to better understand the challenges of poverty and injustice experienced by so many people. Often it is the Corps members themselves who are served and changed by the persons with whom they work and they become voices and advocates for justice and social change for their brothers and sisters.
