Christ House Men's Shelter

Christ House offers transitional housing to the homeless. Its recently renovated facilities afford a safe, clean, and welcoming environment to single men in need of a place to stay while they improve their lives. Christ House also provides shower and laundry facilities to residents. Please call 703-549-8644 for more information.

Our shelter offers transformative programs to move the men from homelessness to independent living. Please see these recent articles on how we are treating the whole person: breaking down physical, spiritual(page 6) and emotional barriers, in addition to barriers to housing.

Founded in 1973, Christ House provides food to the hungry, shelter to the homeless, and clothing to those in need. Christ House helps individuals recognize their abilities, develop self-sufficiency, and maintain their self-respect. It offers limited assistance to individuals needing help to pay their rent, utility bills, prescription bills, and other expenses.

More than sixteen hundred volunteers contribute time and talent to the important work of Christ House. Many help with preparing and serving the evening meals, and some help by painting, cleaning windows and rugs, and washing dishes. Numerous volunteers assist during Christmas, Thanksgiving and other special times. Christ House thanks it many dedicated volunteers.
