Shelter and Housing

View of N Street VillageN Street Village offers five shelter and housing programs for homeless and low-income women that incorporate intensive case management focused on helping women achieve personal stability and make gains in their income, employment, mental health, physical health, and addiction recovery.

Our shelter and housing programs require an intake, a recent TB test, staff approval, and a signed residential agreement. We only complete intakes when we have spaces open in our programs. Are you a potential client interested in learning more? Please contact Bethany Women’s Center at 202-939-2060 to learn whether or not we are completing intakes at this time.
