Community Impact Fund Spotlight 13: The W.I.R.E. D.C.

About The W.I.R.E.

The WIRE (Women Involved in Reentry Efforts) is an inspirational network of formerly incarcerated women who have successfully reintegrated back into the community after release. The Women of the WIRE have joined together to provide peer support and peer advocacy to women in prison and women returning from incarceration.

The WIRE also provides mentorship to Ward 8 youth. Their deepest desire is to disrupt the trauma-to-prison pipeline.

About Martha’s Table Community Impact Fund: 
The Martha’s Table Community Impact Fund is a grant program that strengthens and amplifies the work of Ward 8 nonprofit organizations. This direct investment helps build capacity for organizations historically excluded from institutional philanthropy and whose leadership and staff reflect the demographic, composition, and lived experiences of the communities they serve. For the 2023-2024 grant cycle, grants of up to $15,000 in unrestricted funds were awarded to 14 organizations that were selected by a committee of 38 Ward 8 residents.
