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.
Nadim A. Khan, Chief of Special Needs Housing, spearheaded HRD for Montgomery County residents experiencing homelessness since 2011. Nadim's leadership made HRD one of the county's largest and most successful events. Nadim spent the last nine years of his career as a public servant and the coordination of HRD was very meaningful to him. The annual event will be renamed the Nadim Khan Memorial Homeless Resource Day to honor him and his work.
Since 2011, Homeless Resource Day has helped over 900 individuals and families access services and resources. Comments from the residents and volunteers include the following:
