New Location Better Connects Family Matters with Communities It Serves

Family Matters of Greater Washington, one of the nation’s oldest, nationally-accredited social services organizations, announced today the relocation of their headquarters to 425 Eye Street, N.W., Suite 700 and the opening of a new D.C.-based mental health facility at 1301 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.

“Family Matters is excited at the opportunity to enhance our connections with the communities we serve by this move,” noted Tonya Jackson Smallwood, CEO and President.  “With our refreshed mission that emphasizes impact-driven ‘compassionate solutions that empower, enrich and elevate,’ we view our physical sites as more than offices. We view them as compassionate solutions centers that can better respond and adapt to the needs of our clients and constituencies.”

The new headquarters space will be located on one-level, allowing for improved program collaboration among staff and clients.  Both new sites are metro accessible and easier for Family Matters’ clients to reach than the previous location on 16th Street.
