Health & Wellness

The Judith Morris Wellness Center at N Street Village offers a variety of holistic programs for disease prevention and health promotion for homeless and low-income women. Thanks to program partnerships, and dedicated volunteers including client alumna, we offer a full spectrum of daily wellness programs throughout the year.

Physical Health

In partnership with Unity Health Care, we have onsite primary health care and dental clinics. In addition, we have Village staff, volunteers and other partnerships which provide services and support groups for women coping with HIV/AIDS, addiction, trauma and other challenges.  We offer daily classes ranging from Yoga and Aerobics to Diabetes prevention.

In addition to on-site medical care, we also welcome students from the Georgetown HOYA Medical Clinic to teach classes on various health topics such as heart disease, diabetes, women’s health, and nutrition. Medical students facilitate classes twice per week at our flagship location. They also host an annual flu shot clinic.

In partnership with Walgreens, we host a monthly smoking cessation class as part of our daily classes.

Mental Health

We provide women with mental health education, support groups, crisis intervention assistance, and referral services. In partnership with House of Ruth, we offer a weekly group therapy sessions with our Holistic Housing Program and a monthly Healthy Relationships class to clients participating in our Wellness Center programming.

We also offer a variety of mental health promotion and holistic wellness classes like anger management, meditation, massage, and trauma recovery support programs.

In addition, we have a full offering of arts classes from open studio to an acting program in partnership with Theatre Lab. Women can also express themselves through written word in our autobiography, journaling, and poetry classes.
