The Aya – DC’s latest short term family housing in Ward 6

News—————29 April 2020

DC Department of General Services' Ward 6 new Short Term Family Housing project, The Aya, is complete, and offers dignified living for 50 families with service-enriched programming that will help them stabilize and exit homelessness. “The Aya embodies our DC Values and serves as a reminder that when Washingtonians fall on hard times, neighbors in every ward across the District are here to help,” said Mayor Bowser. “This beautiful facility will serve as a landing spot for families that provides them with the support they need to get back to living the dignified and independent lives that they deserve.” Since the launch of Homeward DC in 2016, the District has reduced overall homelessness by more than 11% and has reduced family homelessness by 45%. 

The Aya, located in Ward 6 on Delaware Avenue Southwest, can accommodate up to 50 families. It is the fifth of seven planned short-term family housing facilities constructed in DC.
