Resources to the Block

The Resources to the Block initiative is a monthly effort to bring government and non-profit resources to undeserved Ward 8 communities. Residents are able to engage with agencies who focus on housing, employment, family services, education, health care and many other issues that plague the everyday lives of Ward 8 residents. Over the last 4 months, the initiative has offered resources to hundreds of District residents.

The next Resources to the Block will be held on May 10th from 2-5pm at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. and Howard Road near Thurgood Marshall Public Charter School. To find out more about the initiative, email Jimmie Jenkins (
