Councilmember Allen Invites Locals to Discuss Homeless Shelter Tonight
Councilmember Charles Allen of Ward 6 is set to host a community meeting tonight to discuss the future of the proposed homeless shelter in Southwest.
The D.C. Council voted in May to build the facility at 850 Delaware Ave. SW as part of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s plan to shut down the aging D.C. General shelter. Allen is planning to talk about the next steps for the project and how locals can get engaged, according to his website.
The mayor’s Homeward D.C. team, which includes the departments of Human Services and General Services, also is slated to answer questions at the meeting.
The gathering is scheduled for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m at the Friendship Baptist Church (900 Delaware Ave. SW).
