From WUSA 9 Washington, DC:
DC Mayor Muriel Bowser was joined by District leaders and community members to celebrate the opening of The Ethel, an apartment building in Hill East that aims to help people experiencing homelessness.
The permanent supportive housing, which is located adjacent to the RFK Campus, has 100 units ready for residents that will offer on-site services to help them sette into their new community.
“The Ethel is more than an apartment, it is a sanctuary – it is a place where residents can finally feel at home and build a sense of community,” said Mayor Bowser. “I’m grateful that our teams came together to make this project happen. We know these homes are going to transform the lives of the residents who will live here. Today, we’re one step closer to making homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring.”
