The Get Off the Ground Project works to provide inflatable mats to homeless throughout DC who are sleeping on hard, uncomfortable surfaces. We can't provide adequate housing but the least we can do is help make their situation more comfortable. Sleeping on hard surfaces isn't only uncomfortable but also causes health issues that a simple inflatable camping mat can prevent.
Through small donations from the community we were able to provide 50 mats thus far but donations have dried up. This grant will allow us to buy enough mats for everyone living outside through the city of DC.
