But don’t take our word for it…


“Friendship Place has become a leader in efforts to transform the homelessness systems in DC, helping to move our community away from Band-Aid approaches and toward real solutions that focus on ending homelessness.”

Nan Roman, President and CEO, National Alliance to End Homelessness


“Friendship Place has become a trusted and indispensable partner in the District’s efforts to end homelessness — a model service provider, with outstanding leadership, impeccable financial accountability, skilled and compassionate staff, and the ability to build successful partnerships with other service providers.”

Dallas Williams, Homeless Services Program Manager, DC Department of Human Services


“Friendship Place is our go-to referral for DC residents who are being released from Arlington County Detention Facility. The staff has gone above and beyond in working with clients we have referred to them. I always get a glowing report from our clients about Friendship Place and their employment and housing program, Aim Hire. I don’t know what we would do without this resource.”

Katy Steinbruck, Director of Reentry, OAR, Arlington, VA
