Help the District name the Ward 4 Short-term Family Housing building!

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

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.
