DC government and Greater Washington Community Foundation align to end homelessness
Mayor Bowser’s Interagency Council on Homelessness collaborated with the Greater Washington Community Foundation to launch the Partnership to End Homelessness on June 6. The public-private initiative intends to increase the supply of affordable housing and aid in the transition from shelters to homes.
The mayor’s Homeward D.C. Plan, released in 2015, has seen tangible results, including a 22 percent decrease in people experiencing homelessness and a 45 percent decrease among families. However, until now, the administration has not formally coordinated with the private sector to achieve its goal to end long-term homelessness.
