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.
Homeless Resource Day was a nationwide initiative to provide assistance to those experiencing homelessness. Montgomery County and the City of Gaithersburg has sponsored the event since 2011 with the assistance of the County’s homeless provider agencies and public and private partners throughout the County.
Nadim A. Khan, former Chief of Special Needs Housing spearheaded the event. In 2017, Homeless Resource Day was renamed to honor Nadim Khan for his strong advocacy and leadership in the field of homelessness.
In 2017, over 60 agencies, departments and organizations participated in Homeless Resource Day. A few of our sponsors were the State of Maryland, Montgomery County Government, the City of Gaithersburg, Qiagen, the Covenant United Methodist Church of Montgomery Village and Maryland Physician Care.
