Our Story

Opened in 1979 through the efforts of members of National Capital B'nai B'rith Lodges, Homecrest House was originally - and is still today - dedicated to providing affordable housing and quality services to low income senior citizens and qualified disabled adults.

In serving the needs of low and very-low income seniors from Montgomery County and the entire Washington, D.C. area, Homecrest House has grown from a single apartment building to a three-building community. The scope of services has likewise expanded to include both residential living and personal care assistance. Our amenities are equally appealing to those residents looking to remain physically engaged - and those who may be more focused on non-physical activities that provide important mental stimulation.  We are conveniently located around the corner from Leisure World in Rockville, Maryland.

A regular schedule of activities and our first-rate facilities engage the passions of our seniors. The computer lab with Internet and library are both well-equipped and accessible for all. Our fitness center, staffed by a trainer, helps residents get the exercise they want. The Homecrest House resident van makes regular trips to nearby shopping centers and other places of interest.

The parties and programs held in the social halls provide occasions for our seniors to socialize. The beauty salon/barber shop affords residents the opportunity to keep themselves looking their best. And the outside gardens & greenhouse offer them the chance to create and enjoy gardening and nature.


Homecrest House is owned by the community based, non-profit 501(c)(3) National Capital B'nai B'rith Housing Foundation which is overseen by a local, volunteer Board of Directors.
