Building on Good Hope Project raised $67,136 during its Virtual Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for the new Southeast Center on Good Hope Road

Monday, September 14, 2020

Bread for the City (BFC) has completed construction on a new, 28,136 square foot comprehensive service center at 1700 Good Hope Road SE. Construction began in January 2019. A virtual grand opening and ribbon cutting took place Thursday, September 3, 2020, which featured legendary DJ Donnie Simpson and DC’s Backyard Band. BFC exceeded it’s $35,000 goal by raising $67,136 to help staff the new center once it’s safe to fully open.

The new Southeast Center will serve 20,000 clients through 75,000 visits each year. It will feature a new dental clinic to provide cleanings, extractions, dentures, and x-rays to 1,000 patients. The increase in space will help other programs: food and clothing distribution, comprehensive social services, legal advice and representation, and community organizing and advocacy…..

BFC is grateful to the DC Department of Housing and Community Development, Diane & Norman Bernstein Foundation, A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation, and The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation who were substantial partners in this project.
