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 a safe haven through supportive and affordable housing for adults living with chronic mental illness. Our 2019 Annual Report describes our programs and highlights our accomplishments last year.

We need your help to meet the challenges of Covid-19! The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation has given us a Challenge Grant so your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000! Double your impact by donating here.

Providing Comfort. Transforming Lives.

Woodley House mourns the passing of our great friend, supporter and ambassador extraordinaire, Mary Margaret Valenti. She was the heart and soul of Woodley House and we will miss her vision, compassion and indomitable spirit.

Woodley House is celebrating our Diamond Anniversary – 60 years of providing housing and support services for adults living with chronic mental illness in Washington, DC. From crisis care to supported independence, Woodley House is there for every step of our clients’ recovery and integration into the community.
