As treacherous winds howled outside that forced the federal government in DC to close, committed local leaders from over 20 DC housing, career, and social service organizations came together to fight homelessness.
The event, co-hosted by At-Large DC Councilmember Robert White, the DC Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs, and the volunteer HopeOneSource DC team, gave attending service providers a unique opportunity to learn about available housing, career, and social services in the District, and how HopeOneSource DC is working to help all service providers achieve their missions more effectively and efficiently with its unique technology.
The HopeOneSource DC platform is a Twitter and Craigslist hybrid that increases access to services.
