Village Update Regarding COVID-19

As we navigate through these unprecedented and cautious times, the health and safety of the N Street Village community — clients, staff, volunteers and supporters — is paramount. We are working closely with our city government partners and leaders to prepare and respond to the rapidly changing climate.

Protecting Our Clients and Staff

Across the Village’s five locations we serve hundreds of women every day and provide housing and shelter for nearly 400 women on any given night. With guidance from the DC Department of Health, the CDC, and the WHO we have taken measures such as:

  • Enhanced cleaning and triage protocols
  • Established an internal COVID-19 Response Team
  • Provide regular communication to staff and clients across all locations.

Protecting our Volunteers and Supporters
