Reducing homelessness in the Golden Triangle.
The Golden Triangle BID operates a Homeless Outreach Program through Pathways to Housing DC. The program’s Homeless Outreach Team works with individuals experiencing homelessness in the Golden Triangle to connect them to critical social services — with the goal of moving them off of the street and into permanent housing. This is done by meeting people where they are, building client-centered relationships, and by establishing creative community partnerships that together, eliminate barriers to services and serve as a model for effectively breaking the cycle of homelessness. On average, the Golden Triangle’s Homeless Outreach Program ends homelessness for at least one person per month.
In 2018, Golden Triangle BID and DowntownDC BID were honored by Pathways to Housing for helping to end chronic homelessness for 125 people in one year.
