Mayor Gray enhances services for homeless individuals

Yesterday, the Gray Administration activated additional warming services for homeless residents (see Mayor Gray Announces Additional Measures to Help Homeless During Extreme Hypothermia Emergency).

Additions to the traditional services detailed in the Winter Plan (PDF) were

  • Buses located across the city in places where homeless individuals tend to congregate
  • A new Twitter account (@DCHypothermia) that will share Hypothermia Alert updates, information about helping the homeless, and directing residents to report sightings of homeless people in need of immediate shelter
  • A new email ( that people can use to make a report to the Hypothermia Shelter Hotline
