About Friendship Place

Location:

4713 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20016, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower people experiencing or at risk of homelessness to attain stable housing and to rebuild their lives. Our vision is a DC community and a nation in which every person has a place to call "home."

Description

Friendship Place has a paid staff of more than 100 and serves throughout the DC Metro region, with successful, award-winning programs that have a lasting impact on the lives of more than 2,900 people a year: street outreach, drop-in, free medical and psychiatric clinic, case management, transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, rapid rehousing, job placement, and specialized programs for veterans and their families. Because of our outstanding outcomes, our program models are studied by government and nonprofit entities all over the country wishing to replicate our success.

Nonetheless, Friendship Place-supported by 26 congregations and more than 300 volunteers a year-retains the feel of a small, caring, neighborhood organization. The most commonly repeated refrain we hear from the people who come to us for help is this: "At other agencies, I felt like a number. At Friendship Place, I’m treated like a human being."
