“I’m grateful that in spite of the pandemic, they let people come here… because if they closed it down, then none of us would have anywhere to go.”

– Carl, DDSC Guest

“The new Franklin Park is its own destination – a place for residents and visitors to enjoy and for workers to retreat to. This is the type of park you would expect to find downtown in our nation’s capital.”

– Mayor Muriel Bowser

“People feel like society has given up on them … and the excitement that they show over getting something as simple as a shower or some socks or some shoes, their ID’s, oh my gosh it’s wonderful. I love what I do.”

– Montee “Angel” Saunders, DDSC Facility Assistant
