Day Services Centers


In August 2018, Mayor Bowser granted $1.7 million to fund a Downtown Day Services Center to provide coordinated wrap-around services for individuals experiencing homelessness. The center will further advance the progress made to reduce and end homelessness in Washington, DC and is aligned with the Bowser Administration’s Homeward DC plan.

The program will be housed in the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church and managed by the DowntownDC Business Improvement District, with social services provided by Pathways to Housing DC, District agencies and additional partners.

The center will open by the start of the 2019 hypothermia season, which begins on November 1, 2018.

For more information, view the Downtown Day Services Center information sheet or Mayor Bowser’s announcement of the $1.7 million grant for the Center.



The Day Center addresses the long-standing need in the community of having a safe and dignified place for individuals experiencing homelessness to go during the day to take care of everyday needs and access long-term services and supports. The Day Center provides access to:

  • Housing assessments
  • Career planning 
  • Case management 
  • Lunch 
  • Shower and laundry facilities, and 
  • Other on-site services offered by partner agencies. 

The Center is located at 2210 Adams Place, NE, adjacent to the Adams Place Shelter and near the NY Avenue Shelter and is open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
