Partner Shelter Sites
We partner with shelters and transitional living programs in Washington, DC
We are NOT a shelter.
Our partner sites protect the privacy and confidentiality of their residents. If you are interested in volunteering, dropping off donations, or visiting one of our partner sites, please contact us at email@example.com before showing up.
Playtime's administrative office is in St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church, which has an important mission of service and social justice and is home to several nonprofit organizations.
St. Stephen is located in Columbia Heights on the corner of 16th and Newton Street NW. Volunteer training takes place virtually, at the church, and at other community locations and NOT at the shelters or transitional housing programs where our volunteers serve. Our office is accessible by car (limited street parking is available) and is within walking distance of the Columbia Heights Metro Station (green/yellow line).
