The Shelter

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that it could take at least 18 months to close the D.C. General homeless shelter. Due to little to no progress made on finding an 8-year-old homeless girl who disappeared in March 2014, many are seeing the girl's abduction as "a symbol of the decay and dysfunction of the shelter," as reported by The Washington Post.
