“Help the District name the Ward 1 Short-term Family Housing building!”

From an email:

Help the District name the Ward 1 Short-term Family Housing building!

The Department of Human Services (DHS), in partnership with the Department of General Services (DGS), is building a Short-term Family Housing program in Ward 1, as part of the District’s all 8 Ward strategy. This smaller, service-enriched program is located at 2500 14th Street and will begin serving families experiencing homelessness early next year. It will also include 15 units of permanent supportive housing for senior women.

DHS is inviting residents to help us name the building!

Through August 15, 2020, DHS will solicit suggested names with a brief rationale for the suggested name.

From the list of suggestions, DHS will select their top two to five names, and using a web-based survey, will ask residents to vote for their top choice. The choice with the most votes will be selected as the building name. DHS reserves the right to make the final determination. If you would like to be notified when the top two to five names are selected and voting opens, please be sure to provide your email address.

Thank you for your participation!”
