Justice For DC Homeless Families

My family experienced an episode of homelessness in 2016 . Thus led to me becoming a homeless advocate for families . In 2016 Virginia Williams Family Resource Center - the central intake social services office for homeless families - told ABC 7 News and myself that they turn no family away from shelter and services. This has proven to be false.
Hundred's of families have reached out to me after being turned away by Virginia Williams and or receiving no case management , employment or supportive services . While hundred's of other homeless families remain in Motel placement over 8 months forgotten about by City Officials.
The conditions of these Motels are unacceptable and in 2016 a baby died at Motel 6 after the constant presence of rodents led to an ashma attack. The child's death was quietly swept under the rug by DC Dept of Human Services . Despite the constant media attention I've diverted on this issue Families with young children still suffer. Please stand with me as we demand better treatment, living conditions and supportive services for DC Homeless Families.
