Brighter Futures Breakfast


For 10 years, Doorways hosted the Brighter Futures Breakfast to celebrate our collective impact and call on our community to be part of critical efforts to create pathways out of homelessness, domestic violence, and sexual assault.

Breakfast sponsors and Table Captains served as ambassadors, inviting friends, family, and colleagues to join them at their Breakfast table. See photos.

Together, we shared stories, marked milestones, and united in support of a common cause. Guests invested in Doorways’ ongoing response with multi-year pledges or offered their support with one-time gifts. These pledges helped sustain Doorways’ programs and services for more than 10 years. We are grateful to everyone who gave through the Breakfast, and invite you to our new event, Open Hearts, Open Doors!

Now: Open Hearts, Open Doors

Today, multi-year pledges are still critical to sustaining Doorways’ ongoing response. If you would like to establish a new pledge, please contact Joy Myers, Chief Development Officer, at 703-504-9290 or

Our new annual fundraising event, Open Hearts, Open Doors, brings our community together for an evening out to benefit Doorways, featuring delicious eats, drinks, a live auction, and more. Launched as a virtual event during the COVID crisis, we hosted Open Hearts, Open Doors in person for the first time in fall 2022 at Amazon’s HQ2. See photos.

Then and now, YOU make Doorways’ mission possible. We are so grateful to each and every person who offers their support to help offer safe haven, healing, and hope to neighbors escaping abuse and experiencing homelessness. Thank you!
