Just Say No!

On freezing nights, homeless families or youth who don’t have one of the specific documents on a list to prove that they live in DC can get turned away from shelter—no matter how deep their roots are in DC or what their reason (fire, etc.) for not having the paperwork with them.
Families who apply for shelter and have been in housing will have to prove that it is “impossible” to return to that housing before they can get emergency shelter, even on freezing nights.
