This weekend, MDB staff, their friends and their family took part in Fannie Mae's Help The Homeless Walkathon. MDB is proud to have been the Fannie Mae Help the Homeless Walkathon agency for the last 7 years. Fannie Mae's Help the Homeless Program is the nation’s largest fund-raising effort focused on homelessness. Nearly 12,000 people in the Washington metropolitan area are without homes. More than 40% are families and one in four is a child. The Help the Homeless Program, which culminates with a Walkathon on the National Mall, raises funds to support organizations working to prevent and end homelessness in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Since 1988, it has raised more than $85 million, impacting thousands of families and children in our communities.
