Adam's Place Emergency Shelter

Do you need housing tonight?  Adam’s Place is an emergency shelter for men over the age of 18 and offers services to meet the basic needs of some of our most vulnerable neighbors.  In addition, this location serves as a hypothermia shelter between November and March when temperatures drop to deadly lows.


Adam's Place offers clients a hot meal, a shower, a place to stay off of the streets, access to a case manager and a work program to give job seekers and individuals new to the job market experience in the work environment. Shuttle service is also offered to several locations in downtown DC. Intake begins at 7 pm each night and the shelter closes at 7 am the next morning.  For individuals who may be dealing with addiction, a substance abuse meeting and support group is hosted on Mondays and Wednesdays between 8:15 pm and 9:15 pm.  This shelter also serves as a hypothermia shelter between November and March when temperatures drop to deadly lows.
