The Fellowship Square Foundation, a faith-based nonprofit organization, provides affordable housing and supportive services to seniors and/or persons with disabilities in the Washington, DC metro area who have limited income and resources. We offer supportive living environments that enhance the independence, self-confidence, and well-being of residents.
Residents at the Foundation’s Fellowship Houses are active, independent, and remain engaged with life in their communities. Some residents are area natives, with most of them being from the East Coast and states east of The Mississippi River. However, many residents relocated across the country or world to be near family members.
Residents often worked in occupations with little or no retirement benefits such as teaching, cosmetology, unskilled labor, and farming. Some are even refugees from forced labor camps. All have limited means and many live on Social Security or Supplemental Security Income alone. Without Fellowship Houses, many of our residents would live in third-world conditions or be homeless.
Our residents want the security of knowing they have a safe place to live and on average stay from five to 15 years. They are interested not only in good nutrition, but in socialization, and continued mental stimulation. They represent a variety of faiths and many have vibrant spiritual lives and appreciate having clerical guidance and support. They also want ongoing access to excellent medical care and supportive services that allow them to live on their own. Read our most recent annual report.
