Help families get a fresh start!

Every day, struggling families in Washington, DC get help from GAFSC.

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

GAFSC provides food, clothing, referrals to shelter and other key supports to strengthen families and I build strong communities.

Thousands of families have been given a fresh start at life through GAFSC's programs and services since 1998.

Now, we need YOUR HELP to continue doing this life-changing work and providing more fresh starts to deserving families.

Our Commitment: Our work has taught us that sometimes life throws curves and the families we serve may be forced to live on the edge. It does not matter why or how this happens. What does matter is that your donation will be used to take the first steps to give those affected a fresh start. The Georgia Avenue Family Support Collaborative (GAFSC) is committed to ensuring that donations received are accounted for and used in the fulfillment of GAFSC's mission to support children, youth and families in Ward 4 (and beyond) to become healthy, empowered and connected in a multi-cultural community.
