Mayor Bowser released Homeward DC 2.0, the District’s updated plan for making homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring. Administration officials highlighted the updated plan at an event celebrating the “Goodfellas Team” – a team of seven residents from the 801 East Men’s Shelter who received workforce training and have now been hired to work on the construction of the replacement shelter.
・・・
When D.C.'s shelter for single men is completed this November, it will have 364 beds and wraparound services like health care and employment counseling.⁠

"I dare anyone -- you come out here and get on this job,” Robert Miller, one of the men working on the construction, said. “You’re gonna show other people that it can work. That’s why I’m standing right here, because I know it works.”
