Press Room

March Greetings from DC Department of Aging and Community Living

Our Performance Oversight Hearing was last month before the Committee on Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization. We always look forward to hearing directly from you about your experiences and how we can do an even better job of meeting you where you are, so thanks to everyone who testified, attended and watched! Our Budget Oversight Hearing is scheduled for April 3, and we look forward to continuing the conversation before the Committee.

As I said in my testimony, the Department of Aging and Community Living is committed to making sure that the work we do within the agency is always reflective of the community we serve. That means that we’re always listening and interested in knowing how we can best serve you. We take this feedback back to the office — good, bad, and everything in between — and we ask ourselves, “how can we make this experience better for our residents?”

I’d like to personally invite you to join us for one of our budget town halls taking place during the week of March 23. For more information, contact DACL at 202-724-5626.

This is an opportunity to learn about how Mayor Muriel Bowser’s proposed 2021 investments will go towards ensuring every District resident has a fair shot at opportunity here in the District, especially our seniors, adults with disabilities, and caregivers. I look forward to seeing you there!

This month is also National Social Work Month! With more than 700,000 social workers in the United States and 5,000 in the District alone, chances are that you have known or currently know people who have dedicated their lives to the field of social work. In District government, we’re fortunate to have social workers at many levels, whether they’re in the community working with our residents or influencing policy and creating programs that enable our residents to thrive.

Social workers view all of us we want to be seen — by our potential and not our mistakes. They recognize every individuals inherent value and help people realize their own ability to overcome obstacles and reach their full potential. Social workers are advocates, teachers, guidance counselors, problem solvers, innovators, organizers, and activists.

At DACL, I’m fortunate to work with social workers who inspire me to lead with my heart, not just my head. Many thanks to all of the DACL social workers, the Senior Service Network social workers, and all social workers in D.C. for making this city a place where we can all live boldly!
