County Officials Celebrate Ribbon Cutting for Progress Place; Services to Homeless Begins on Coldest Day of the Season


With temperatures not rising above freezing on December 16, it seemed spot-on that services began at the newly built Progress Place in downtown Silver Spring. The 39,000 square-feet facility serves the homeless through a successful partnership between government, private development and non-profit partners who work together to serve those in need of services and shelter.

County Executive Isiah Leggett joined by County Councilmembers Nancy Floreen, Tom Hucker and George Leventhal, Department of General Services Director David Dise, Health and Human Services Director Uma Ahluwalia and non-profit partners to cut the ribbon to celebrate the opening of Progress Place on December 10. Residents will begin moving into the facility the first week in January.
