Homeward DC, the ICH Strategic Plan lays out a bold vision:

Together, we will end long-term homelessness in the District of Columbia.  The Homeward DC plan is guiding the work to ensure that homelessness in the District will be a rare, brief, and non-recurring experience.

The plan is built on three major goals and identifies a series of action items across five key strategies

We know that homelessness is solvable when we have a common vision, we keep a laser-like focus on outcomes, and we have the resources to get the job done.  Together, we can ensure that homelessness in the District of Columbia is a rare, brief, and non-recurring experience.



Solid Foundations DC is the District's first-ever data-driven plan focused on the needs of unaccompanied youth.

The plan will serve as a roadmap for building an effective system of care for unaccompanied youth experiencing or

at risk of homelessness, with the goal of ending youth homelessness by 2022. 

Solid Foundations DC provides a framework for advancing intensive and coordinated work to prevent

and end homelessness among youth.

On January 23, 2019, The Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness (TCP) conducted the annual Point-in-Time (PIT) Count for the District of Columbia. The PIT Count provides a “snapshot” of the number and demographic characteristics of adults and children who were experiencing homelessness in the District on that day. TCP has conducted the count, a requirement for all jurisdictions receiving Federal homeless assistance funding, on behalf of the District of Columbia since 2001. This single-day enumeration of the homeless services continuum of care gives TCP and our partners in District Government an opportunity to identify gaps in the current portfolio of services and informs future program planning with special consideration to Homeward DC, the local strategic plan to end homelessness.
