WASHINGTON — Project Homeless Connect brings together essential services at the area’s largest resource fair to meet the needs of our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.
The number of families experiencing homelessness has decreased by 12 percent since 2018, with the closure of DC General and the District’s opening of three Short Term Family Housing sites.
However, the number of singles adults experiencing homelessness has increased slightly by nearly three percent.
United Way of the National Capital Area brings together local service providers from medical, to housing, to employment and much more - serving over 1,500 PHC participants to date.
Andre, a 2018 participant said, "This place has really just allowed me to connect with some places that I have been trying to get to and just been too busy to get to."
#PHC matches each participant with someone who guides him or her through the event.

In one day, PHC participants gain access to services that might otherwise take months to secure.
