"I'm happy to report I'm in contact a landlord who is willing to take a chance on Mr. S and his family. He is going to move into a three bedroom home which will bring his family back together. His sons are at a shelter in Arlington, and his wife is at a different shelter. Mr. S is very excited and grateful to DRC to be able to have his family back. "

- Rapid Rehousing Case Manager Cindy Bell

Talking to Children about Homelessness
When children begin to ask questions about the people they see in the community, sometimes it is hard to know what to tell them. The DRC has created a page on our website written just for kids.

On the page, we explain in kid-friendly language what it means to be homeless, who is homeless, and how kids can have a positive impact and do something to help.

We've also included questions for you to ask your child to foster a discussion and help them to process what they've learned.
