Calvary Women’s Services Honors Efforts of Richard Newman and Arent Fox
Washington, DC — Real Estate partner Richard A. Newman and Arent Fox LLP are being honored by Calvary Women’s Services for supporting the organization’s new facility in Washington, DC. Calvary is a nonprofit that provides shelter, services and education to homeless women in the nation’s capital. The organization will add a commemorative plaque that recognizes the work of Mr. Newman and Arent Fox for providing Calvary with legal counsel and representation.
“I am honored to receive this generous award from such an important nonprofit,” said Mr. Newman, co-chair of Arent Fox’s Public Finance Group. “We take pride in our work for organizations like this because of our commitment to help strengthen our communities. Calvary, in particular, does vital work to make our community better.”
The plaque will be on display December 9 during Calvary’s Ribbon Cutting Reception, a formal event celebrating the nonprofit’s new $3 million, 14,000 square foot home on Good Hope Road, in Southeast Washington, DC. Calvary runs several programs for women dedicated to addressing homelessness. The organization makes available an extended stay shelter and in-house services that include job training, GED preparation and mental health counseling. The new building is expected to serve 50 women a night and provide 200 meals a day.
