By BETH A. HANSON | The Washington PostWASHINGTON — For most of her adult life, the little girl whose home on the Washington suburbs has been a refuge for some of the nation’s most vulnerable residents has been at a disadvantage.
For a while, her family lived in a two-bedroom apartment with no running water, no heating and no running electricity.
The neighborhood, on the far west side of the city, has become a magnet for homeless people, who are sometimes known as the “shelter rats” of the area.
The only thing keeping her alive in the city was the kindness of strangers.
“They don’t ask us questions, they don’t treat us like we need to be cared for,” said the girl, who asked that her last name not be used for fear of repercussions.
The girl’s father is an artist who has been living in the apartment since he moved there from Maryland, two years ago.
The family has had to pay hundreds of dollars to rent an apartment, but that hasn’t stopped them from living in their own home.
She said the landlord recently gave the family a two bedroom, one bathroom apartment that he said was on the market.
He said he’d have to call back and ask if there were any new offers and to find out how much they were going to pay.
“They told us we were not eligible to move into the new place,” the girl said.
“I asked, ‘Why not?’
He said, ‘Because we don’t have money to pay the rent.’
I asked, why?’
He told me, ‘We don’t need to have the rent paid because we don of the homeless population.
We don’t want to live in the homeless housing.
So we have to move in with the rent.'”

In addition to the apartment rental, the family is also living in another building, a vacant house on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, that has been on the block for about three years.
They are paying about $1,200 a month for a room in a five-bedroom home on Pennsylvania.
They’ve also spent money on security cameras, heaters and more.
It’s a familiar story for some who call the neighborhood home.
It is also one of the areas hardest hit by the opioid crisis, a drug epidemic that has left thousands of people living in shelters and other outlying shelters, many of them in the Washington area, and forced homeless families to sleep outside or at a shelter.
The influx of homeless people has caused problems with the neighborhood, with many people turning to drugs and violence.
Homeless people have become a big part of the debate over President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, which is expected to cost about $20 billion and is being criticized as an expensive barrier to immigration.
In the meantime, the administration has proposed adding hundreds of new federal jobs to the local economy and a $500 million federal fund for affordable housing.
One of the most significant changes in the area is the construction of the White House and Capitol Police Departments.
Since the beginning of the year, construction has been underway on a $2.7 billion wall between the United States and Mexico that will be the biggest in the country.
This summer, construction of Trump’s first major project in the region has also started.
Construction of the Trump International Hotel, which has a pool, spa and spa-like amenities, is expected in the coming months.
The hotel will be built on a 30-acre site that was once home to the Washington Naval Shipyard, and the White Senate and the U.S. Capitol are set to be relocated.
Some of the largest private construction projects in the nation will begin this year.
The Trump International Golf Course is expected begin construction in early 2018, with the Washington Nationals baseball team expected to move to downtown Washington in 2020.
Several local businesses, including a chain of restaurants and an ice cream shop, are expected to begin operations in the spring.
For the last three years, the Trump Organization has been leasing the property that the White Houses sit on from the federal government.
Trump also has the option to buy the property from the government for $200 million.
He said that as president, he plans to spend $5 billion on the area and create 1,000 new jobs.
He also said he plans on expanding his golf course to the eastern side of downtown, where it is used by the Washington Redskins and other professional sports teams.
President Donald Trump has been very focused on the opioid epidemic and has been taking the fight to states across the country with new initiatives, including new executive orders aimed at reducing opioid abuse.
But there are signs that some areas of the country are not ready for a major overhaul of the entire government infrastructure.
