Ending Homelessness: Get Involved

Here are some upcoming one time events and on going projects where you are needed.

Upcoming Events

 

CNHED Advocacy Day

Monday, April 23, 2018
Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW

This year CNHED is asking that the Housing Production Trust Fund receive an additional $20 million to build affordable units. The cost of living and housing has continued to rise and additional funding is needed to assist low to moderate-income residents.

Join your fellow CNHED members and supporters on April 23 to ask the Council to make sure these programs are not forgotten as they work on the FY19 budget. It's important that you RSVP TODAY so that we can ensure you are matched with your council member in time for Advocacy Day.

Learn more about CNHED's budget recommendations concerning housing, small business, and homelessness.

 

The Way Home Briefing

Wednesday, April 25th from 930-11
Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW

Join the Way Home for a briefing about the budget with the DC council. You can also read about The Way Home's budget priorities. For more details, email Jesse Rabinowitz at jesse.rabinowitz@miriamskitchen.org
