Each year, approximately 300 people with mental illness avoid hospitalization because of the work of Woodley House, the only organization of its kind in the DC metro area that offers support to people with mental illness every step along their journey towards recovery, from crisis to independence.
Yet on average, we are reimbursed only 73 cents for every dollar of care we provide. In order to maintain our highest standards of care, we must raise over $250,000 annually from private donors.
That’s why I’m thrilled to announce an opportunity for an enjoyable, entertaining evening with The Motley Fool on Friday, June 22, from 6:30 to 8 pm, with all proceeds going to fund Woodley House programs.
Please join us for a glass of wine, light hors d’oeuvres and the opportunity to hear The Motley Fool speak about all matters financial“ with a question and answer opportunity at the end. Tickets are $125 per couple and $75 for an individual.

Woodley House has been serving adults with mental illness for over 50 years, providing a caring, affordable home and the clinical support services needed to help people move toward recovery and a more independent life. We are a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, so all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

We have a small group of longstanding committed donors, but we need to increase awareness of our good work in the region, so weâ€™d be grateful for your help in spreading the word.
