Due to a significant water system failure at the 2 Taft Court location in Rockville, the Interfaith Works Women’s Center residents and staff have been temporarily relocated to the IW Empowerment Center (8106 Georgia Ave., Silver Spring). Repairs needed are major and are expected to take at least two months to complete, and the 2 Taft facility must be vacated during that time. Because of that, unfortunately we cannot accept any referrals at this time. Please check back regularly for updates.

The residents have immediate needs due to the water system failure, which included a sewage leak. If you would like to contribute to address those needs, please go to bit.ly/IWWomensCtr. Scroll down to the section that says: “If you have a special purpose for your donation, please let us know.” Use the designation drop-down menu to select “IW Women’s Center Rose Room.” Please know that the donations will go to help all shelter residents in addition to residents of the Rose Room dorm (which was the most affected dorm in the water system failure).

If you have questions, you can reach IW Women’s Center staff at the regular number: 301.770.2413.
