The Way Home is a campaign to end chronic homelessness in the District of Columbia by 2017.
Join the campaign: Sign our pledge.
On any given night in the District, there are nearly 1,600 individuals and families living on the streets and in shelters who are considered chronically homeless – they have been homeless for years and struggle with significant issues like mental illness and chronic health conditions. These are some of our most vulnerable residents.
As first step toward ending all chronic homelessness, we urge DC to end veteran chronic homelessness by the end of 2015, joining the ranks of Phoenix, Salt Lake City, and New Orleans to be one of the first communities to end chronic homelessness among veterans by the federal goal of 2015.
