A Word from the Executive Director

I hope this finds you and your family in good health. Throughout the world, society is taking unprecedented measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 Virus. There are many implications that stem from the changes made to daily routines, and we know they can bring about uncertainty.

The Coalition is dedicated to keeping the clients we serve in our transitional housing programs and our dedicated staff healthy by following the guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and D.C. Government for social distancing, frequent handwashing and cleaning and disinfecting of our facilities.

Wherever you are, and however this pandemic is currently impacting you, we urge you to heed the advice of medical experts and government authorities, and stay home except for essential travel, and to do all you can to remain safe and healthy.
