Mary’s House for Older Adults is a nonprofit organization that develops brick and mortar housing targeting the cultural and relational needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/same gender loving (LGBTQ/SGL) elders. Our first communal living home will be built in Washington, DC. Our vision is to build a Mary’s House in every ward in the District of Columbia as well as every state and territory in the Union. We know that there is not enough affordable and culturally competent housing available to older adults, especially for LGBTQ/SGL people. Also, we educate on and advocate for issues germane to elders, emphasizing that the lack of housing is a public health issue.
This property is currently under construction.
Anticipated Opening Date: 2020

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
