Media mogul Oprah Winfrey pledged $1 million Thursday to N Street Village, a social-services agency in Northwest Washington that has served thousands of homeless women over four decades.
“The thing that excites me the most about N Street,” Winfrey told a crowd gathered at a fundraising luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton, “is that you are an intention-based organization. You don’t just help, heal and get women to recover, but your intention is literally to transform lives.”
N Street has been recognized nationally as a model for success at ending women’s homelessness. Programs focus on compassion, personal responsibility and empowerment.
