SMYAL once again rises to the challenge of meeting one of the greatest unmet needs in D.C. with this second and largest expansion of our housing program. This program is one of the most comprehensive in the region in that it holistically supports a youth’s development in their education, job readiness, mental health, physical health, and most importantly, taps into their inherent sense of resilience to create a path from homelessness to independence

Help us make this all possible.
