Review for Open Arms Housing, Inc, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Permanent housing for women with disabilities and or a chronic history for homelessness is needed in the District of Columbia. Open Arms Housing is a program that offers stable, safe housing in a supportive environment. Residents, after many years of living in emergency shelters and on the streets, are encouraged to work with staff to create a permanent home. Programs like Open Arms are needed throughout the city to address the growing number homeless women, men , and children.

Assisting 13 women as they transition from living on the street and emergency shelters to permanent housing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
