During today’s house meeting, a guest brought up Mayor Vincent Gray’s proposed $7 million cut to homeless services funding. With this cut, shelters are at great risk and may close. Those that do stay open may have half their beds cut for men and women. Services, including food, transportation, and outreach will be cut.
There is a rally this Thursday, May 10, at 9am to protest this budget cut. The march will start from the CCNV Shelter: 2nd & D St NW, DC.
If you have time, please rally to help keep shelters open and services provided.
