Dorothy Day Place

This transitional housing program for women living in Montgomery County, Maryland provides a crucial bridge between homelessness and permanent housing. This is not emergency housing, but instead follows the continuum of care to end homelessness through case management and ongoing support. 


Dorothy Day Place is a transitional shelter for single adult women who are homeless and over the age of 18.  Case management services at the shelter include job readiness, educational services, life skills training, mental health support and substance abuse counseling.

Intake: Enrollment in Dorothy Day Place is made through referrals only by a case manager, social worker, psychiatrist, nurse or substance abuse counselor. All applicants must be female, 18 years of age or older and with no dependents. For intake, please call (301) 762-8314.

Get Involved

Donate: As our residents transition from homelessness to permanent housing, they are especially in need of clothing and healthy meals to prepare them for steady work and self-sufficient lifestyles. You may donate items in-kind, or make a direct monetary donation to Dorothy Day Place.


Volunteer: We are thrilled to accept services from any volunteers, but are especially in need of caring individuals interested in preparing meals for our residents, conducting life skills workshops and offering facility support.
