Valenti House

Valenti House, the center of the Woodley House program, has helped thousands of men and women achieve stability and reintegrate into the community. Located in Woodley Park, this three-story townhouse is named in honor of Mary Margaret Valenti, a former Woodley House Board member and great supporter of Woodley House. 

Valenti House offers a warm, caring environment for men and women working toward recovery and greater independence.  It is centrally located near public transportation, stores, restaurants and recreational activities (within walking distance of the National Zoo). Residents receive full room and board, as well as individualized assessment, support and life skills training. Valenti House provides housing for up to 20 residents and is professionally staffed 24 hours, seven days a week.


Valenti House Referral/Application Process
Referrals are accepted from the Department of Behavioral Health, Core Service Agencies, private providers, hospitals and families.

Privately-paying residents need a psychiatrist who can include Woodley House in the resident’s treatment plan, providing a referral for application to Woodley House. Residents also need to show proof of their ability to pay. Privately-paying residents can come from outside the District of Columbia.

Residents who require financial assistance must show proof of DC residency, be enrolled with the DC Department of Behavioral Health (with an eCura Number) and have a recommendation from their Core Service Agency to apply to Woodley House and have access to public funding assistance. The Core Service Agency will inform them of any needed documentation that they require. After documentation is gathered, please contact Valenti House to receive more information and to set up an initial interview.

Becoming a resident of Valenti House includes housing, meals, 24 hour residential supervision and comprehensive skills training and clinical support services. Please contact Valenti House for more information.
