The District is committed to closing the DC General Family Shelter at the earliest possible time. The Plan recommends a one-to-one replacement of the number of units currently provided at the DC General Family Shelter be available in other, more appropriate facilities before closure. This Plan also recommends that at least the main building of the DC General Family Shelter should be closed in its entirety all at once, rather than in a piecemeal fashion, to avoid an unplanned expansion of the overall shelter capacity.
Note: This is the corrected version of the DC General Family Shelter Restructuring Plan, as of October 14, 2014, at 3:30 PM. A previous version contained a typo in the Budget Chart on Page 6, which has been revised to indicate the correct Total Annual Operating Costs for 6 Buildings (per 50 unit building) as $24,996,000.
