Woodley House is dedicated to helping people with mental illness or substance use disorders live full and healthy lives with dignity within our safe and comforting residential community. Since 1958, we have provided a pathway to recovery for thousands as they work to reclaim their lives.

OCTOBER 10TH – WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY!!!  A perfect time to reflect on the importance of maintaining our own mental health and helping others who might be struggling.  1 in 5 of us will face a mental health issue in the coming year … this affects us ALL!  Please help Woodley House continue to ‘be there’ for so many who have no place else to turn by clicking DONATE. 

We are proud to announce our 23rd Annual WOODLEY HOUSE MOVIE BENEFIT on Thursday, November 14, 2019 with a special pre-release screening of Warner Bros. Pictures Film THE GOOD LIAR, starring Helen Mirren & Ian McKellen.  Our Master of Ceremonies is CNN Chief Political Correspondent DANA BASH and it should be a terrific evening. Please join us!
