A permanent supportive housing program located in Washington, DC, Mt. Carmel House provides housing and intensive case management and wrap-around support to homeless women. An on-site Job Center with 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 is a majority self-funded program under Catholic Charities, meaning it depends on the generosity of the community in meeting the needs of the women who come to us. The facility has 21individual rooms and a full kitchen, as well as a private outdoor garden.
