PBS News Hour Profiles DowntownDC BID Drop-In Center


A DowntownDC drop-in center for at-risk youth was profiled April 21 by PBS News Hour, which was following up on the viral story of D.C.’s missing girls.

The DowntownDC Business Improvement District (BID) together with Sasha Bruce Youthwork and the First Congregational United Church of Christ in 2016 began piloting a drop-in center for at-risk youth on Monday nights. There, young people are offered food, activities including games and movies and are connected with key services and support networks.
