Adam’s Place Shelter

Adam’s Place is a low-barrier shelter open to anyone who identifies as male age 18 years and older.

About the Program

Located in Northeast D.C., the low-barrier shelter offers a hot dinner, access to case management staff, housing and financial counseling, showers and a bed on a nightly basis. It has been open 24 hours since the start of the pandemic.

The shelter offers a 12-hour and a 24-hour program, depending on the client’s willingness to participate in the shelter’s services. The 24-hour program is known as Work Bed Program in which clients who work at least 20 hours a week have access to case managers to achieve specific goals.

Shuttle service to downtown Washington is provided several times a day to assist clients in getting to and from work, day programs and other resources.

Shelter hours are extended when special weather alerts are issued by D.C. government. The shelter serves as a hypothermia emergency shelter during the coldest months of the year, from November to March.
