Founded in 1988 as a social justice program of the Washington Hebrew Congregation, under the leadership of Rabbi Joseph Weinberg, Carrie Simon House was the first transitional housing program in DC that allowed homeless mothers and their babies to live together.
Carrie Simon House is a non-sectarian, independent 501( c )(3) nonprofit organization. Carrie Simon House is open to homeless and at-risk mothers of all faiths. We welcome donations and volunteer support from all who share our commitment to seeing homeless mothers in our community achieve stable, productive, happier lives - for themselves and their children.
The program is named for Carrie Simon, the wife of Rabbi Abram Simon who led Washington Hebrew Congregation in the early 1900’s. Carrie Simon believed in the importance of women joining together to strengthen families and benefit their communities.
