The solution: a home

We make that happen — one individual or family at a time.

Put housing first to end homelessness

Our strategy is based on one simple idea: the answer to homelessness is a place to call home.

That’s why DRC solutions and services put housing first at sites across our community.

We help people experiencing homelessness find housing fast, then make housing last with access to supportive services they’ll need to succeed. That’s how we put housing first, and it works.

The proof: 90% of people housed by the DRC are still housed after one year, 85% after two years–a result that’s better for individuals and the community as a whole.


Many other DRC solutions set the stage for housing by safeguarding hope and human dignity.

Today DRC solutions like these reach more people than ever through colocation, or sharing space with partner agencies. Partnerships extend our reach without the high cost of new facilities.

We do all this by meeting fundamental human needs.
