In November of 2017, Everyone Home DC was thrilled and honored to be awarded the inaugural Bill Phillips Grant by the Capitol Hill Community Foundation for our Homeless Street Outreach Program. Bill Phillips, a longtime Capitol Hill resident and friend to Everyone Home DC, passed away suddenly in December of 2016. This grant is underwritten by Bill’s dear friend,
Sue Carlton, to continue his legacy of caring for the Hill’s most vulnerable residents. The funding from this grant will help us continue our work with individuals experiencing homelessness on the Hill.
Everyone Home DC’s Street Outreach Team works with chronically homeless individuals living in Ward 6 and utilizes a person-centered approach to meet clients where they are and connect them to community resources with an end goal of moving them off the streets and into permanent housing. In 2017, our Street Outreach team helped 10 chronically homeless individuals move into their own homes.
Everyone Home DC is grateful to the Capitol Hill Community Foundation for its ongoing support of our Street Outreach Program, Homeless Assistance Response Team (HART), Parenting,Wellness, & Recovery Support Group, and Life Skills Workshops.
