Under Our Own Wind

Coming in 2025!

The homeless problem in Washington, DC is a growing concern for everyone.  Assisting individuals in attaining housing is not the only issue.  Helping them maintain housing once it is acquired is a bigger one. UOW is a two division program that is focused on providing individuals with the necessary skills to be able to do just that.

Our transitional 18 month program will assist homeless individuals who are looking to re-acclimate themselves back into regular society and provide them the opportunity and skills to do so.


In many instances, the LGBTQ population is not safe in a regular homeless environment. An emergency homeless shelter is available along with a transitional program for individuals from the shelter.  This program ensures that those in the LGBTQ population are afforded the same opportunities in a safe environment with staff that is sensitive to the needs of the varied population.

This Program is created in loving memory of Elisha Stanley… a sister that never saw those she loved go without!
