Hogan Lovells' Washington office celebrates successful Calvary Women's Services partnership with launch of new strategic plan

Washington, D.C., 2 November 2018 – The Washington, D.C. office of Hogan Lovells celebrated its 12-year partnership with Calvary Women's Services (Calvary) by helping the organization to launch a new strategic plan, called HOPE 2020, which will significantly increase its ability to impact lives.

Hogan Lovells Washington Region Managing Partner Eve Howard was joined for the launch by Kris Thompson, CEO of Calvary. Through HOPE 2020, Calvary aims to increase the number of women who are experiencing homelessness it reaches by 50 percent.

Speaking at the event, Howard said:

"Our partnership with Calvary has grown into a genuine friendship, so naturally we're thrilled to help kick-off the organization's HOPE 2020 campaign. Calvary's work connects directly to our Empowering Girls and Women Initiative and demonstrates the tremendous value that we place on durable, multi-faced partnerships locally and globally in our communities. HOPE 2020 will further expand Calvary's services, and with new opportunities and belief their beneficiaries need."

The launch event, held at Hogan Lovells' D.C. office, raised almost $17,000 toward Calvary's new plan, which is just the beginning of a campaign to reinforce the organization's growth. In the past three years of partnership alone, the firm has donated and raised more than $100,000 financial and in-kind and spent more than 2,000 hours volunteering with Calvary, teaching IT skills, serving meals, and celebrating Calvary’s women clients with field trips, birthday parties, and more.

Calvary offers a number of services for women affected by homelessness in the D.C. area. Its services include transitional and permanent housing programs, personalized case management, life skill and education classes, employment support, health and wellness services, on-site therapy sessions, and daily addiction recovery meetings.
