Hi: I cover social issues in the District for The Washington Post. I am
writing a story on Emery shelter on Lincoln Rd NE. The story will be the
cover story of the District Extra, a weekly insert in the Post, and will
publish on Thurs. July 21.
I am looking for residents of PSA 501 and ANC5c who are neighbors to the
shelter, or other neighbors in the area who are aware of the shelter. The
shelter is undergoing a transition and is shifting from an emergency
shelter for homeless men to an "employment shelter," a shelter dedicated to
homeless men who are working. I am looking to talk with neighbors and
residents who are aware of this transition.
Please contact me directly at labbet@...
or at 202-334-5191 as
soon as possible this week, and before my deadline, Thursday July 14, so I
can record and include your neighborhood voices in this story.
