Mary House is a Brookland based non-profit organization in operation for over 35 years. Their mission is helping families from at-risk immigrant communities, such as refugees, in a way that promotes their dignity. They do this by providing shelter, resources and a sense of community. Mary House is run entirely on donations and grants. We recently learned from this article in Curbed DC that they are looking to expand their building at 1005 Bunker Hill Road NE (near Turkey Thicket/10th and Michigan NE). From the article:
…there are designs for a three-story addition connected to an existing two-story building by a one-story pedestrian walkway and entry. The new building will add 12 residential units to the six existing units in the current building. There are also plans for a bicycle storage room, three new parking spaces, and a new rear patio.
At this point a Zoning application has been filed. Fingers crossed for this great organization that all goes well with their development plans.
