Ways to Give
Woodley House has been tackling unmet need in Washington, DC, for more than 60 years. We remain dedicated to ensuring that DC’s residents with mental health disorders receive the housing, care, and services they need. Your support is crucial to ensuring adults with mental health disorders have the resources they need to thrive on their way to recovery.
Your donation will provide housing, food, life skills training, and other services that transform the lives of adults with mental health disorders in our community.
We welcome donations of household items and furniture. Our online “wish list” is updated frequently with items that we need. Please note that Amazon does not share names with us – let us know that you’ve donated!
Donating a vehicle is as simple as just a phone call or the click of a mouse away! To donate your vehicle, click the link below for a fast, easy donation process with free towing and maximum tax deduction.
Woodley House offers fun and fulfilling volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Volunteers play a major role in realizing Woodley House’s mission to help residents with mental health disorders live full and healthy lives with dignity. In an effort to respect our volunteers’ interests, we take great care in matching individuals with our needs. We offer opportunities and programs for all ages and cater to a variety of commitment levels. Sign up as an individual or register your group by emailing development @ woodleyhouse.org.
