Homelessness Task Force
Homelessness is a difficult, multifaceted issue, with many causes and complexities. To solve the problem, we as a city – and as a community – need to work together to find affordable housing, connect folks to services, and mitigate the challenges that homeless encampments can create.
Homelessness is a significant problem in every community in the District, but Ward 2 faces unique challenges. The Foggy Bottom Association has launched a Homelessness Task Force to address the specific issues that affect Foggy Bottom and the West End. Working with leaders of District agencies and other neighborhood groups, we work to learn what programs are currently in place to help folks experiencing homelessness find homes, and how we can contribute to Mayor Bowser’s focus on making homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring. This is an ongoing effort, and your participation is essential.
