Mt. Carmel House

Mt. Carmel House is a permanent supportive housing program for women recovering from homelessness.

About the Program

A warm and caring environment tucked in downtown Washington, Mt. Carmel House offers each resident her own bedroom. All residents work closely with our in-house case-management team. An on-site job center with computers, printers and Internet allows residents, with guidance from staff, to search for and secure employment. Workshops ranging from financial literacy to basic education to substance abuse are held regularly.

Founded in 1980, Mt. Carmel House has 21 individual rooms and a full kitchen, as well as a private outdoor garden.

Enrollment in Mt. Carmel House

Referrals to Mt. Carmel House are made through DC Coordinated Entry for Single Individuals.
