Metropolitan House: National United Methodist operates two residential housing programs – Metropolitan House located in the Natio United Methodist building and St. Luke’s House located at the St. Luke’s Mission Center on Calvert Street. Both provide shelter to home individuals who are working with Friendship Place’s AimHire program. St. Luke’s House and Metropolitan House were two of the first shelters to open in upper Northwest DC, and over the past twenty-five years they have provided safe, stable, and secure living environments that have empowered hundreds and hundreds of men to move beyond homelessness toward self-suffciency, employme and permanent housing. In 2015, Metropolitan House shifted its focus from serving men and now houses women. Both programs emphasize independent living and have expanded from the older night-shelter model of “in- by- 7am-out-by- 7pm” to offer residents 24 hour-a-day access. This accommodates the varied schedules of those who are working or seeking employment. For more information c 202-363-4900 or visit www.nationalchurch.org.
