Enjoy the following gallery of Mother’s Day cards that kids who live in DC General Shelter made for their city leaders through the Homeless Children’s Playtime Project, and please take a moment to ask your city leaders  to invest in affordable housing so that kids in DC shelters will finally have homes.

We wish you and yours a safe and happy Mother’s Day.
