Fire Closes McKenna House
McKenna House is temporarily closed after being severely damaged by fire on March 29, 2022. Residents are being placed elsewhere until the building can be restored and reopened. The residents have immediate need for food, transportation, clothing and other personal items. If you’d like to help these men whose trauma was exacerbated by the fire, please consider a donation. Gifts also will be used to refurbish McKenna House so it can be reopened.
A Transitional Housing Location
Located in the historic Mt. Pleasant neighborhood in Washington, D.C., McKenna House follows the Single Room Occupancy model for single adults, serving as the last step often for adults who are transitioning from homelessness to independent living. All residents must be able to demonstrate sustained sobriety and must be either employed for at least six months or have a verifiable income source.
This program is a Single Room Occupancy model for single males, serving as the last step often for adults who are transitioning from homelessness to independent living. Referrals are accepted from social workers, case managers at emergency shelters and transitional housing programs with documentation of substance abuse treatment and completion.
We provide 24-hour access, single-room housing to qualifying residents as a final step before independent living in the process of recovering from homelessness.
