DC General Is Closed

Dear Washingtonians,

We did it. This week, we closed DC General once and for all.

Four years ago, we made a bold promise to close the DC General Family Shelter for good. We said what everyone knows to be true: In a city as prosperous as ours, we can do better. DC General was too big, too old and rundown, and too remote to help our most vulnerable families.

This week, I thank our landlord partners who have helped our families secure permanent housing across all eight wards. I thank the Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness for their tireless efforts to support our residents exiting homelessness.

I thank all the men and women at the Department of Human Services, the Interagency Council on Homelessness, and the Department of General Services for their relentless work to drive down homelessness in the District, to close DC General for good, and to build and open the smaller, more dignified programs we know our families need and deserve.

Most importantly, thank you to our entire city for taking on this bold vision. Together, we will continue our work to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring.

Sincerely,

Muriel Bowser
