Interfaith Works Women’s Center

The IW Women’s Center is a 70-bed emergency shelter serving approximately 300 women per year. Case managers work with women to facilitate recovery and stability, as well as connect them with housing, medical, mental health, and social services.

The Interfaith Works Women’s Center is now located at:

2 Taft Court, Suite 100, Rockville, Md., off Gude Drive (lower level of the building, around the back)

Our phone number (301-770-2413) and fax 301-770-5966 will stay the same.

We are excited to move into the new space, which provides residents with expanded living and community areas. In addition, residents are able to access vocational services and dental, medical and behavioral health care services in the same building!

Latest Updates

We have a great need for groups of volunteers to prepare dinner for 35 women this summer. If you can coordinate the preparation of a dinner for 35 people and deliver the meal on one evening, please let us know. Your group is welcome to drop off the meal or stay and serve it to the residents.

We also have openings for volunteers to bring lunches on weekends. Meals are needed for between 35 and 40 residents on Saturdays and Sundays. Bag lunches would be dandy. Hot meals are always appreciated! Volunteers are invited to stay and serve from noon to 1 PM.

Contact Samantha Cheakalos, Community Engagement and Volunteer Coordinator, at if you can help in either of these ways. Samantha will be happy to talk about the details and provide information (and inspiration!) on how to prepare a meal.
