The Community Partnership collaborated with the Urban Institute on new research that finds an estimated 12 percent of DC residents experience housing insecurity.
Black residents experience insecurity at a higher rate than any other racial group, with Black residents ages 15 and older making up an estimated 68 percent of the housing-insecure population. Additionally, 42 percent of those experiencing housing insecurity live in Wards 7 and 8.
The researchers find that services designed to address housing insecurity should be targeted in a way that better reaches disproportionately affected groups, including Black and Hispanic residents, households with children, and residents in Wards 7 and 8.
The Community Partnership serves as a focal point for efforts to reduce homelessness in the District of Columbia.
We believe collaboration within the community is our strongest tool to address homelessness in the District of Columbia. The TCP Family has spent the last 30 years working to foster and deepen connections with the communities we serve.
We collect, analyze, and provide access to homeless services data. From managing the HMIS (Homeless Management Information System) to completing the annual Point-In-Time count, we believe quality data is vital to quality outcomes.
We take our mission to heart. Our efforts to administer housing subsidies, coordinate grants, and fund efforts to prevent homelessness reflect our deep commitment to mission and the clients we serve. We will end homelessness in the District!
The Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness is committed to providing housing resources to homeless singles and families in the District of Columbia. We are currently seeking housing units to assist towards this endeavor. Please join our more than 2000 landlord partners currently providing housing to District residents experiencing homelessness.
