Jefferson House

Jefferson House 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.

As the first personal living quarters in the city of Rockville, the Jefferson House program provides permanent supportive housing to formerly homeless men who are in a treatment program or have completed a treatment program. The house has a capacity for five men and a resident manager.  Throughout the year, 6 to 10 men are served. The Housing Director and Case Manager, with the support of an on-site Resident Manager, supervise the house.

The Case Manager works with each resident individually on budgeting and financial issues, housing services, personal goals, community service work, providing outside speakers, nutritional assistance, educational assistance and follow up on relapse prevention.

After completing a day treatment program and spending 2 years in the shelter system, Jason entered the Jefferson House program.  It was a long and necessary journey, but now follow up is needed to not only maintain all that he accomplished, but to go further.  After only a few months at Jefferson House, Jason is a full time student at Montgomery College and working part-time at the college.
