Testimony: Short-Term Family Housing Construction Progress

June 25, 2018

Children’s Law Center attorney Kathy Zeisel recently testified at a Roundtable on Short-Term Family Housing Construction Progress. The roundtable focused on DC General closing and the short-term housing options that are meant to serve as replacement shelters for DC families. The Children’s Law Center team is concerned about the reports that the agencies in charge of the construction knew about delays building these replacement shelters and did not accurately represent this to the public or the families who live there. Families who live in DC General are now facing health harming conditions, significant turmoil for school-aged children and uncertainty. Read Kathy’s testimony here.
