Temporary Housing at Hope Apartments

Organization: Community of Hope

We provide short-term, transitional housing for families who are also in need of substance abuse services. In a safe, service-rich environment, parents get help with treatment and support for their employment and permanent housing search.

Nestled in the Congress Heights neighborhood of Southeast, DC, Hope Apartments provides apartment-style transitional housing for 10 homeless families with children, where the head of household is in recovery from substance abuse.

Hope Apartments is one of few programs in DC where children can live with their parents while the parent works on recovery. Adults attend outpatient substance abuse treatment programs while simultaneously working on finding a job and stable housing.

Families work closely with our staff to achieve their goals and receive a number of supportive services:

Goal-oriented case management
Connection to substance abuse services
Assistance on finding an affordable apartment
Connection to employment and training
Connection to behavioral health services
Life skills classes on parenting
Connection to community resources
