N Street Village, the award-winning social services agency that provides shelter and support to homeless and low-income women in the Washington, DC metro area, hosted its annual gala at The Ritz Carlton to honor the clients, volunteers and supporters of the organization.

The Honorable Byron Dorgan (D-ND) and Mrs. Kim Dorgan were the Gala Honorary Co-Chairs.  Melissa Maxfield (Comcast Senior Vice President, Congressional & Federal Government Affairs) & A.B. and Jill Cruz were the Gala Co-Chairs.

N Street Village presented Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Senator and Mrs. Mike Enzi (R-WY) with the Founders’ Award, which recognizes individuals whose professional and personal efforts have provided new opportunities for the most vulnerable in our society.

“Greetings N Street Village Friends, what a night!  Thank you for making the 2012 N Street Village Gala such a successful evening. Thanks to you, we raised more than $620,000 to provide over 900 homeless women with not only food, shelter, and clothing but also the comprehensive mental health, physical wellness, addiction recovery, income, and employment services they need to lead fulfilling lives. It is your community-minded support that empowers women like Carol, Noelle and Bobbie, our honorees, to shine. We would be delighted to welcome you to the Village this spring so you can see first-hand what a difference you have made. “ said N Street Village's Stuart Allen.
