About Us
AFCEA Bethesda > Philanthropy 
Legacy of Commitment

AFCEA Bethesda is dedicated to building a culture of collaboration. But more importantly, as a non-profit association it is our responsibility to give back to the community. Each year, we host A Night for the Children, a charity gala committed to raising money for the House of Ruth.

With support from the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Justice and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, The House of Ruth assists more than 1,000 women and children who were homeless and abused. The agency operates 14 programs in the District of Columbia, including Kidspace, a therapeutic child development center for homeless children, the Domestic Violence Support Center, providing counseling to survivors of domestic violence, and 12 residential programs for homeless women and families. On any given day, more than 200 children call House of Ruth home.

The annual charity gala brings together representatives from companies and agencies across the U.S. federal information technology community to raise money for this most worthy cause. In 2015, we will continue our call to support and thank you for your generous participation.
