Non-profit Spotlight: Community Residences

Community Residences, Inc. (CR) is nonprofit organization that provides community-based transitional, long-term residential, and independent living support services for adults in one or more of the following situations: diagnosis of mental illness, an intellectual or developmental disability, and homelessness.

CR provides a number of services for youth and adults, including: residential group homes, community integration and support, intermediate care facilities, and assisted living care.

On Saturday, November 13th, volunteers from Community Volunteer Network are joining together to help prepare the yards of five CR homes for winter. We’ll be raking and picking up trash and debris. Afterward, we will meet at Front Page (Ballston) to relax and meet fellow volunteers.

This is our biggest event of the year and it takes dozens of volunteers to get all of the work done. If you’d like to help out, please sign up here:

Also, if you’re part of a group that would like to help out, please email One Brick’s Washington, D.C. chapter has already signed up to help, and we’d love to work with more organizations!
