Mary House is a community-based transitional housing program that provides shelter and support services to struggling immigrant and refugee families. Our goals as an organization are twofold: to provide a stable and nurturing environment for vulnerable families and to build customized support programs aimed at building their independence and self-sufficiency.  Both goals are aimed at meeting a family’s needs in the present while preparing them for life well beyond their residence with our organization.

Our story

For over 35 years, Mary House has been providing shelter, resources and a community for struggling immigrant and refugee families in the DC area. Founded on the concept that "smaller is better", Mary House provides for our community solely through grants and donations from people like you.
