Shelter

District residents experiencing homelessness are encouraged to utilize emergency shelter. Shelters are operated by non-profit organizations under contract with the Department of Human Services. Most shelters provide a warm and safe place to stay and offer additional supportive services and case management.  Shelter capacity is expanded during the winter months for residents who are at risk of hypothermia.
