Because Juneteenth (June 19th) falls on a Saturday, Community Connections will be closed on Friday June 18th to commemorate the holiday.

The holiday recognizes June 19, 1865, when Union Major General Gordon Granger read federal orders stating that all enslaved people in Texas were free. It is a day to celebrate the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved African Americans in the Confederacy.

The goal of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month is to spread awareness. More specifically, to promote respect for people with disabilities while educating others.

Many don’t realize the abilities of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). By showing examples of people with developmental disabilities thriving alongside people without, we can help end negative stereotypes.

Celebrating 30 years!

Lisa Terry found her way to Community Connections DC 30 years ago. First, Lisa pursued her BSW from Columbia Union College in Maryland. On February 11, 1991, Lisa joined the Community Connections family. She started as a HUD skills trainer that assisted individuals with daily housing/living needs. Shortly after, Lisa was offered the Director of Housing and Property Management position. Within 30 years, she has seen so many changes. She has seen the program grow exponentially: the housing team growing larger and the acquiring and development of new properties (from approx. 3 to 50!).

Lisa aims to echo Community Connections' mission and maintains interaction with the consumers. Lisa describes the most rewarding aspect of working with Community Connections is witnessing the change that occurs when an individual gets stable housed. "It is such a commodity", she states as she honors the process of helping individuals call a place their home. Thank you, Lisa, for all of your hard work and dedication.

CHEERS to 30 years!!

#FUNFACT- Lisa is devoted to animal advocacy & animal rights. She has rescued several animals and provided a loving environment that they can call home. Pets Rule!

We teamed up with Virginia Distillery Company, and aged Black is Beautiful, a Weathered Souls Brewing Co. collaboration, in their whisky barrels. The beer has retained its complex, delicious flavors and has picked up the classic whiskey notes. Try our Barrel-Aged Black is Beautiful on draft or in 750ml bottles. A perfect gift for the holidays. Swing by for pickup or have it delivered.
.
Black is Beautiful is a collaboration to help raise awareness for the injustice people of color face daily in our community and abroad.
.
This beer supports Community Connections DC, whose mission is to provide behavioral health, resident services, and primary health care coordination for marginalized and disenfranchised people living in the District of Columbia.
