Welcome Home is all about making meaningful connections to shelter residents who are transitioning to permanent housing and expanding upon the hospitality they have received while in our shelter. The long-term goal is to help clients build community support and lasting relationships, therefore eliminating a return to homelessness. We have clients that are ready for support but we need volunteers to mentor them. Interested? Email Jenn@reachofwc.org or call Jenn at 301-733-2371, ext. 106 for more information.

DAY RESOURCE/CRISIS ASSISTANCE – Tuesday & Thursday, 9am-1pm
Trained volunteers meet with Washington County residents who are facing a crisis to offer encouragement, advice, and referrals to other providers, as well as monetary assistance.
Our primary focus is the prevention of homelessness which includes eviction prevention, rent deposits and/or first month’s rent, utility deposits and other housing related needs. We also help those with little or no income to secure birth certificates and identification cards when necessary for employment and/or services from other local agencies. Occasional assistance is provided for emergency prescriptions. Learn More »
