About Short-term Family Housing
Short-Term Family Housing facilities will be small, safe and dignified – with the services and supports that help families experiencing homelessness get back on their feet. These facilities will replace the oversized and outdated DC General Emergency Family Shelter. Each site will house no more than 50 families and include wrap-around services and supports including 24-hour staff to help families overcome barriers and move quickly into permanent housing.

For more detailed information on Short-term Family Housing, including a list of Frequently Asked Questions, please visit:

If you need reasonable accommodations or an interpreter, please call 202-727-7973 or e-mail [email protected] before noon on Wednesday, December 7th, 2016.
