Good evening neighbors,
As part of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s plan to close DC General, the Department of Human Services (DHS), in partnership with the Department of General Services (DGS), is building a Short-term Family Housing program in Ward 4, as part of the District’s all 8 Ward strategy to close DC General Family Shelter. This smaller, service-enriched program is located in the Kennedy Street Corridor and will begin serving families experiencing homelessness in the Fall of 2018.
At the suggestion of the Ward 4 Community Advisory Team, DHS is inviting Ward 4 residents to help us name the building! Suggestions may be submitted here:http://bit.ly/Ward4STFH. The survey will close on June 22.
For more information about the Mayor’s plan to close DC General, please visit mayor.dc.gov/homewarddc.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Executive Office of the Mayor
