Nebel Street Homeless Facility To Open Monday, March 7

The Nebel Street homeless facility will open on Monday, March 7th.

It has been described by county officials as a critical project that will provide temporary shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness and will provide associated services which are insufficient for the current population and future projections. DGS purchased the two-story building located at 11600 Nebel Street in North Bethesda to provide sleeping quarters, meals, and medical and case management services. This new facility will enable the County to implement its new emergency shelter policy for the unhoused population so that they have access to year-round shelter and a temporary place to spend their days until they are connected to permanent housing.

The County’s previous policy offered limited access to shelter from April to October. During hypothermia season, shelter bed capacity expanded but without support services or day-time operations. This new policy is a priority for Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and will enable shelter residents to get the services and assistance they need in one facility. Although emergency shelter does not end homelessness, the expansion of year-round beds and the new facility ensures that people are not sleeping outside and are rapidly connected to housing resources.

“This shelter represents a major shift in County policy – we are now committed to housing those without shelter every month of the year.  Before COVID-19, the County was only able to provide shelter during the winter months.” County Executive Marc Elrich said.  “With this shelter, we will offer the homeless the dignity of a bed every night and place to be during the day.  I am proud of our efforts to respect everyone in our County.”
