Washington, D.C.

The outside temperature has dropped dramatically, leading homeless residents of the region to head to shelters. Many, however, don’t take advantage of shelters for a variety of reasons and remain outdoors during brutal conditions. We discuss winter homelessness in the region, the reasons why people choose to stay (or don’t stay) in shelters, and what local governments are doing to help some of the area’s most vulnerable residents during the winter.
