The Sterling Short Term Family Housing

Organization: National Center for Children and Families

THE STERLING SHORT TERM FAMILY HOUSING (STFH) provides emergency, temporary, housing and comprehensive supportive services to over 405 homeless children and their families in DC’s Ward 5 each year. Services include intensive case management and employment support, counseling, parent education, life skills and ABE/GED instruction, housing searches, and employment.

Referred by the DC Department of Human Services (DHS), residents are given the opportunity to get back on their feet after an economic crisis, gain self-sufficiency and obtain stable, permanent housing in the community. Over 100 volunteers provide children and their families with learning and recreational activities, holiday parties, and a host of additional essential services.
