Mary House is a community based organization that provides transitional housing services, shelter and support programs to homeless and struggling families, and was founded on the concept that "smaller is better." The philosophy at Mary House has always been to help others as we ourselves would want to be helped, while providing a safe haven that allows families to reclaim their dignity. Mary House is run entirely on donations and grants, and we accomplish our service and our mission through the generosity of people like you.
Mary House was founded on August 13, 1981 and has been serving immigrant and refugee parents and children in Washington, D.C. ever since. Mary House works with low-income Latin American families and recently expanded services to resettling Eastern European and Iraqi families. With thirteen sites in Northeast Washington D.C. and Takoma Park, Maryland, Mary House can serve up to 50 families with housing. Expanded support services of Mary House serve an additional hundred families every month. During its thirty two year history, Mary House has sheltered and cared for hundreds of families.
