DHS cleared three homeless encampment sites near K and 26th Street NW on the morning of June 28 – the temporary home to two dogs and approximately 12 people. In a departure from recent encampment evictions, if residents were present to claim their belongings and ostensibly begin taking down their tents, they were not forced to leave the area. However, unattended belongings were discarded, not sorted or stored.
