What is Homeless Resource Day?

Homeless Resource Day is a one-day, one-stop opportunity for individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness to access services, resources and information.  

We are happy to announce that Montgomery County, Maryland and the City of Gaithersburg will partner again to sponsor the seventh annual Homeless Resource Day in November 2017.


History

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.  This year Homeless Resource Day will be renamed to honor Nadim Khan for his strong advocacy and leadership in the field of homelessness and his initiative over the years in making this event a huge success.
