N Street Village, which provides housing and support to homeless and low-income women in the Washington, D.C., area, held its annual gala March 14 at the Marriott Marquis — and honored Mayor Muriel Bowser with the 2019 Founder’s Award for her commitment to ensuring that homelessness becomes, as she says, “rare, brief and non-recurring” in the nation’s capital.

“Mayor Bowser has made unprecedented investments and encouraged innovation toward our shared goal of ending homelessness as we know it in our city,” said Schroeder Stribling, CEO of N Street Village.

The Steinbruck Award went to Ruth Mohamed Nur, Rebecca Ortiz and Rosalind Wheeler. Co-chairs included Hillary and Tom Baltimore, Erika and A. Scott Bolden, Kasey and Joe Crowley and Tina and Gary Mather — with Jacqui Michel as auction chair. Singer Aloe Blacc serenaded the room with his single, “I Count On Me,” from the film, “Green Book.”
