Supported Independent Living

Our Supported Independent Living Program is the last step before total independence for our residents.

Woodley House owns and leases apartments and condominiums throughout Washington, DC for our residents who can live without 24 hour care and supervision as they reintegrate into the community. Residents live on their own with roommates in a shared apartment environment with continuing monitoring and help from Woodley House Life Skills Trainers. We provide weekly coaching, counseling support and skills training, focusing on mastering basic skills that will ease their transition toward self-sufficiency and successful independent living.

Referral/Application Process:

Referrals are accepted from the Department of Mental Health, Core Service Agencies, private providers, hospitals and families.

Privately-paying residents need a psychiatrist who can include Woodley House in the resident’s treatment plan, providing a referral for application to Woodley House. Residents also need to show proof of their ability to pay. Privately-paying residents can come from outside the District of Columbia.

Residents who require financial assistance must show proof of DC residency, be enrolled with the DC Department of Behavioral Health (with an eCura Number) 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 costs for consumers start at $50 per day on a sliding scale, including fees and skills training clinical support services. Please contact Neisha Kornegay, SIL Residential Lead for more information about how to enter our Supported Independent Living Apartment Program.
