D.C. Mayor Announces Annual ‘A Home for the Holidays’ Campaign

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Monday announced the launch of the District’s fourth annual “A Home for the Holidays” campaign, which aims to help 500 families experiencing homelessness to acquire long-term housing this holiday season.

Because the District is seeking to partner with local landlords to identify approximately 1,200 new apartment units over the next two months, the focus this year is on vulnerable residents residing in hotels as protection from the coronavirus pandemic.

“During these difficult times, ‘A Home for the Holidays’ is an opportunity for us to work together as a community to make this season brighter for families who need our support,” Bowser said in a statement. “This campaign isn’t just about this holiday season. It’s about providing families with stable housing so they can get back on their feet and into a permanent home of their own for next year and many years to come.”

Since the campaign’s launch in 2016, more than 12,000 single adults and families have transitioned from homelessness into permanent housing.
