A Home for the Holidays

2018 Home for the Holiday.jpg

What is your holiday wish? Many District residents would like nothing more than to have a home for the holidays. Are you able to help?


The District has several programs to partner with housing owners interested in helping their neighbors, both families, and individuals, transition from short-term housing and into long-term housing solutions as quickly as possible. Your available, affordable units are needed. To learn more about Mayor Bowser’s innovative new strategies which reduce risks by partnering with the District please write, [email protected] .


Many families and individuals exiting homelessness don’t have the necessary houseware such as pots and pans and other items needed to transform housing into a home. Donations of new or gently used kitchenware, toys, houseware, and professional clothing will be collected and disseminated from November 15 through January 15. For more information, please write [email protected] or deliver your donations directly to the Adams Place Day Center at
2210 Adams Place, NE. Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
