Landlords needed to help city help homeless families


On February 12, Mayor Bowser and DHS acting director Laura Zeilinger, and others announced A New Lease on Life.    The program is described in the release as "an innovative initiative to help homeless families find quality, affordable housing."

The initiative has two parts.   The first is the new team approach to helping connect homeless families to housing.   The second is an aggressive outreach and engagement effort to identify and then bring landlords with available and affordable apartments into the program.

Landlords interested in participating in this life changing program by contacting DHS by phone, (202) 698-4140, or email, newleaseonlife@dc.gov.   Landlords can add info about their available units in an online form.

The A New Lease on Life website also has a flyer that can be downloaded for distribution.
