Our all-volunteer Board of Directors, tutors, mentors and playtime supervisors are an integral part of Sinai House. Past Bar/Bat Mitzvah projects have included refurbishing the community playroom, taking portraits of our resident families and taking resident children on an outing. We hope you will be inspired to join us after you read some of our Sinai House Volunteers Stories.
Registration is now open for the third annual Tricia Davis 5K Walk/Run for Sinai House. Celebrate Mother's Day by running or walking as a family -- and still have time to take mom out to brunch after the race! Proceeds from this event will directly support Sinai House in its mission to enable families to move from homelessness to independence by providing safe and affordable housing, comprehensive social services and financial support.
Register for the 5K race as a runner or walker, for the Fun Run, or as a virtual runner (if you can't attend). You can create your own Personal Fundraising Page, join or start a team, and enlist family and friends to support your fundraising goal. An award ceremony will take place at Rock Creek Park immediately following the race. Strollers and dogs on non-extendible, 3' leashes are welcome. Last year's event was a great success with over 350 registered participants. Send an e-mail to email@example.com or click here to find about sponsorship opportunities and include your company's logo on the event T-shirt and your material in the race registration packet.
We run, walk and celebrate to honor the memory of Tricia Davis, a founder and early supporter of Sinai House. Tricia brought energy, excitement and passion to everything that she did, and Sinai House was no exception.
Pre-Race Packet Pick-Up on Friday, May 12 from 5:30 - 6:30 PMSleep in a little later on race day by picking up your registration packet in the Temple Sinai Foyer on your way to the Sinai Cares Shabbat Service that begins at 6:30 PM.
Sinai House was established in 1992 by members of Temple Sinai to help formerly homeless families with children become stable & self-sufficient.
The program aims to help each family stabilize its housing and financial situations, accompanied by progress in attaining family members' educational and employment goals. We operate in two attached row houses in the Shaw neighborhood of DC. Our residents live in the program's apartment units and receive services under a case management plan tailored to their individual and family needs.
Services coordinated by the program director include parenting, nutrition and cooking classes, placement in appropriate job training programs, employment referrals, help learning to manage personal finances, and workshops on computer use, energy efficiency and how to obtain affordable housing and healthcare.
