Ending Chronic Homelessness: The Way Home

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location:
Edlavitch DCJCC

Community Service, End HomelessnessAs temperatures begin dropping, we are reminded of the importance of securing housing for our neighbors experiencing chronic homelessness.

The Edlavitch DCJCC is teaming up with Holy Trinity Catholic Church and Moishe House DC for an interfaith evening of learning and discussion.

An individual experiencing chronic homeless has been homeless for years or repeatedly, and has a disabling health condition. On a given night in the District, approximately 1,500 people are experiencing chronic homelessness. The average age among this group is 55 years old, and the average life expectancy is 62.

Ending chronic homelessness is possible, and the solution is housing. Already, the District has successfully housed 1,500 veterans in the past 3 years. 

Join us to hear a personal account of homelessness in DC, learn more about the issue, and find out how you can take concrete action to end this social injustice through the work of Miriam’s Kitchen, a local nonprofit working to end chronic homelessness through advocacy, housing, case management, meals, outreach, and art.

A vegetarian dinner will be served.
