Jefferson House

CMR’s Housing Program provides permanent, supportive housing and case management services for men and women.

The Jefferson House

Established in 1991, Jefferson House was the first personal living quarters in the city of Rockville that provides permanent supportive housing to homeless men who have finished a recovery and/or treatment program but who cannot find clean, safe, affordable housing in Montgomery County. These men have stabilized their substance abuse and are employed, taking college classes or in training for career skills. The Jefferson House is home to six to ten men per year.

The Rockland House

The Rockland House opened in April of 2014 thanks to the generosity of supporters in the community and funding received from Montgomery County. The Rockland House is a permanent supportive housing program for women patterned after the Jefferson House Model. It is home to five women who were coping with homelessness. Supportive services and case management are provided by CMR's Housing Program Director.

How You can Help

Volunteers are needed to help residents garden and mow the lawn. Donations are needed for cleaning products as well as paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, soaps (dish washing, detergents for clothes, hand sanitizer) and shampoos and personal products.
