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.
