Community Development

Agencies that serve the homeless will be implementing their White Flag emergency response plan tonight and Thursday night because of the expected winter storm.

Those in need of shelter should check in as usual at the Bethesda Center, and City with Dwellings will arrange transportation to shelter locations. The Bethesda Center and City with Dwellings are collaborating on a contingency plan to house guests at alternate locations in the event that power is lost to the regular emergency shelter. Police officers are encouraged to continue taking late arrivals to the Bethesda Center, where shelter staff will contact White Flag staff to determine where to take that guest.
