At Christ House, the medically vulnerable men experiencing homelessness who come to us as they heal are not just our clients. When they are in our care, they are our neighbors and our community members. We opened our doors in 1985 as the first medical respite facility for sick, homeless patients in the country and are still the only such medical respite program for men experiencing homelessness in Washington, D.C. Since that time, we have remained on the cutting edge of conversation around radical hospitality, inclusion, and healing.

Our goal is for patients to leave Christ House stabilized, with the education and tools necessary to manage their health problems. In the long-term, we aim to prepare our patients to use these physical, mental, and emotional improvements to ultimately break the cycle of homelessness.
