The Little Lights Benefit on September 28th at the Howard Theatre is made possible through the generosity of our corporate sponsors and their faith in our advancing work with under-resourced children and families living in DC public housing. Their corporate sponsorship provides the funding so that all donations given at the Benefit go directly towards our holistic programming.

We are so very grateful for our first time sponsors, Neuma Consulting and the JLC Team, and several returning sponsors, including Georgetown University, Highlands Residential, and Stewardship Partners.
