Housing-First Units Open on Owen Place
A few of Trinidad’s newest residents moved to the neighborhood in October as Open Arms Housing, Inc. completed and opened their housing-first units on Owen Place. The units, their second project in Washington, DC, provide permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless women and are a model for ending chronic homelessness in the city. The project begins with providing permanent housing and then addressing other services based on individual need. Funding for the projects are from a mix a public and private entities. Construction was recognized back in April as Open Arms Housing and their construction partners moved forward with building plans.
A recent Washington Post covered the project on Owen Place and provides an introduction to some of our newest neighbors. Stop by and say hello to welcome them to our community!
