Nestled in the historic St. Elizabeth’s Hospital campus, this flagship homeless shelter project is the first in Washington DC designed to accommodate a variety of discrete support programs: a daytime service center, dormitories (365 beds total) dedicated to overnight “low-barrier” stays, working individuals, seniors & the medically frail, those needing respite care, and a health clinic. The accessory amenities include a multi-purpose space, dining room, laundry, showers, social service consultations, computer lab, salon, and donated clothing boutique. The original goal was to achieve LEED Gold, which we met. SBP provided comprehensive LEED v4 consulting services for the project. SBP provided strategic sustainability planning throughout the design and construction process. In addition, SBP was contracted to provide Energy Modeling and LCA services.
801 Men’s Shelter was created in an effort to support health and job placement of the local community. The Department of Human Services (DHS) of DC is responsible for the health and well-being of DC’s vulnerable residents. The mission of this organization is to provide essential services to the local community, such as childcare, food, and healthcare assistance. The Permanent Supportive Housing Program (PSHP) provides permanent housing and supportive services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness to ensure housing stabilization, maximum levels of self-sufficiency and an overall better quality of life.
