Alston’s Place

In July 2020, the Wanda Alston Foundation opened the doors of our second facility. Located in Ward 1, Alston’s Place is equipped with 10 beds, a computer room, a lower-level common area, and ADA-compliant amenities. We are proud to have been selected as one of the few homeless shelters in Washington, DC to pilot a 6-year program serving LGBTQ+ youth ages 16 to 24 with more intensive support services.

Services provided at Alston’s Place include:

  • Long-term transitional living (up to 6 years)
  • On site 24/7 staff
  • Case management
  • Educational guidance and support
  • Job training and guidance
  • Support service referrals
