We are pleased to announce CPDC was recognized by District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser for our participation in the highly successful 2017 Home for the Holidays program.
Spearheaded by the city’s Department of Human Services (DHS), the goal of this program was to secure permanent housing for 400 vulnerable families and individuals from November 2017 through the end of the holiday season. Partnering with landlords throughout the District, DHS approached trusted community partner CPDC to provide affordable housing and apartment units for the initiative.
CPDC was able to assist DHS and the District of Columbia Housing Authority by providing 20 families with lease agreements. The total number of homes surpassed the goals originally set, and at the end of the program, 422 homes were fulfilled as part of this campaign.
The success of this campaign speaks to the long-term reality for affordable housing in D.C. under Mayor Bowser’s ongoing Homeward DC plan and the great work our team at CPDC does every year to help families grow and thrive.
