Homeless Resource Day is a nationwide initiative to provide assistance to those experiencing homelessness. Montgomery County and the City of Gaithersburg have sponsored the event annually since 2011 with the assistance of homeless provider agencies, public and private partners throughout the county. Homeless Resource Day (HRD) 2015 served more than 400 households.
Since its inception in 2011, Nadim A. Khan, former Chief of Special Needs Housing spearheaded this event.
