The District’s Winter Plan for homeless services went into effect on November 1. When the temperature falls below 32° Fahrenheit between November 1 and March 31, all residents who are experiencing homelessness must be housed.
You can help. Call the Shelter Hotline when you see a person who is experiencing homelessness or may be impacted by extreme temperature.
The United Planning Organization (UPO) operates the Shelter Hotline. You can reach the hotline in three ways:
- (202) 399-7093
- 1 800 535-7252
