Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood in NW Washington near Silver Spring, Maryland, Holly House is our long-term group home for eight men and women with mental illness who are or are at great risk of being homeless. Located in the garden-rich residential Shepherd Park neighborhood, it is within easy walking distance of public transportation and stores. Residents living at Holly House receive continuing clinical support services from Woodley House as they go out into the community, participating in individual day programs, full or part-time jobs or volunteer programs.
Referrals are accepted from the Department of Behavioral Health, Core Service Agencies, private providers, hospitals and families.
Residents who require financial assistance as they are homeless or at great risk of becoming homeless, must show proof of DC residency, be enrolled with the DC Department of Behavioral Health and have a recommendation from their Core Service Agency to apply to Woodley House and have access to public funding assistance. The Core Service Agency will inform them of any needed documentation that they require.
The cost per day is $110 (full room and board), but resident fees are subsidized, depending on ability to pay. We provide 24-hour residential staff supervision and support services delivered with dignity and respect with the goal of speeding consumers to independence.
