This is so hard for us all as we begin the slow process to reopen 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 supportive and affordable housing for adults living with chronic mental illness. Please read our 2019 Annual Report for highlights of our accomplishments last year.
