Mary's House is being developed in response to bigoted and prejudicial practices in the area of housing particularly such actions that are directed toward older adults who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. President and CEO, Dr. Imani Woody has a vision to create safe and affordable nonprofit housing project in Washington, DC that will honor the whole person as s/he ages. Her vision is being shared by like-minded individuals, organizations and a team of experts, making the creation of Mary's House a reality.
Mary's House will be a residential facility in the Fort Dupont Park section of historic Washington, DC and will provide a communal independent living experience for adults 60 years of age and older. It will provide a family- like environment with a shared kitchen, common dining area, shared community room laundry facilities and a therapeutic hot tub. Plans include eight single rooms with private baths and closet space. There will be staff involvement to assist in the coordination of city and community services.
This will be the first facility of its kind in Washington, DC, focusing on the housing and relational needs of its LGBT older adult population. The cost for building this project is estimated at $1,200,000.00
