About us

Founded in 1976, House of Ruth helps women, children and families in greatest need and with the fewest resources build safe, stable lives and achieve their highest potential. At House of Ruth, we are ending homelessness and life-long abuse.  At our 14 programs in Washington, DC, we assess the capacities and needs of each woman and child, then design and deliver a specialized combination of services to meet their specific needs and build on their strengths.  We enfold the women and families in an environment that is safe, structured and predictable and where they receive highly responsive and caring attention from the staff.  Despite all these challenges, the women and children have not given up. They are resilient, courageous and determined to improve their lives.
