Every family at risk of or experiencing homelessness in the District of Columbia must register at Virginia Williams Resource Center, the central intake for DC’s coordinated homelessness assistance system for families with children, before receiving housing and social services. This is the only place for families in DC facing housing instability to obtain a shelter referral. Many of our family programs are accessible through referrals from Virginia Williams Family Resource Center.
