The St. Elizabeths West Campus outreach program welcomes it’s new community partner, Uplifting Society, Inc., which is an IRS approved 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in its first year of operations. Uplifting Society is dedicated to ending cycles of poverty and crime in our communities across the nation. Uplifting Society began in Fayetteville NC and has now extended its services to the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia communities.
Uplifting Society has partnered with the St. Elizabeths West Campus outreach program to provide the Kingdom Care Senior Village (KCSV) located in Ward 8 with living assistant equipment.
We are excited to assist our senior community with day-to-day living accessories to ensure they are living and growing in their own environment. St. Elizabeths West Campus and Uplifting Society have come together to sponsor reachable grabbers 32” extra long and 24” extra long shoe for the Kingdom Care Senior Village (KCSV) . These two house hold items can be essential to accomplishing the most difficult tasks when living independently.
The St. Elizabeths West Campus outreach program joined the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Protective Services (FPS), and along with the DC Housing Authority (DCHA) for the 1st Annual St. Elizabeths One Voice Backpack drive. ProCon Consulting’s continued sponsorship of 250 preassembled backpacks made it possible to assist students between the ages of 4 and 15 years old prepare for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year.

Black Panther has a good heart, and it gives us a real hero—strong and honorable and, when possible, even filled with grace ~~ Paul Asay, Plugged In
