Jordan House offers a residential psychiatric crisis stabilization program for adults in Washington, DC; Mary Claire is a six-month extended program for those who, upon discharge from Jordan House, would be vulnerable to cycling through crisis again because of severe or persistant mental illness exacerbated by chronic homelessness. Caring staff are on-site 24 hours a day and cultivate a safe, stable, homelike environment. Counselors complete a comprehensive assessment of each incoming client and follow-up with intensive counseling to rapidly stabilize psychiatric symptoms.
