This is such a hard time for us all as we begin the slow process of reopening our city. The very real threat of Covid-19 continues and recent social unrest underscores the hardships and challenges so many in our city face each day. Woodley House stands united against racism and for social equity in our community. Please take care of yourselves and one another. We’re in this together.

For 62 years, Woodley House has provided welcoming and affordable housing and support for adults living with chronic mental illness. Our 2019 Annual Report describes our programs and highlights our accomplishments last year.

Woodley House provides a safe haven for men and women struggling with mental illness and we need your help! Thanks to a Challenge Grant from The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar,  up to $20,000! Please help us (& double your impact) by donating here.
