"When I graduated, I wanted to stay in the DC area to start my career. Through my job search, I stayed at TMH and through my stay I've gotten so close with other residents and staff who supported me throughout my whole job search! This November, I found my first job as a change management analyst and thanks to TMH I can reside here in DC and enjoy the city to the fullest. I love heading down to Eastern Market on the weekend with friends or going on a scenic run to the Capitol Building. I love it here!"
"They provide dining services twice a day, it's within ten minutes walking distance to Union Station, offers 24/7 security, and the building staff are nice .I think it's a great option for a single young woman looking to get into the DC metro area."

“The place where I found the encouragement to finish my master’s dissertation. Home to every girl who wants peaceful…friendly, and inspiring nights.”
"All the TMH ladies made my time in DC unique in many more ways that I could've ever think of. However, coming in with the disposition to share, talk and meet new people is a must to have a great experience. Sharing spaces with +70? girls is a fun adventure. Also, having breakfast and dinner served everyday is AWESOME!! The location is unbelievable good, too!!"
"I lived here for 4 months in 2019. Safe, comfortable, and beautiful place to live for young women and students starting out in DC. Close to metro, the Hill, and downtown. Wonderful staff from top to bottom! Highly recommend for female students looking for a short term place."
“I walked through the doors of TMH 20 years after living on the 3rd floor during graduate school while working as a Congressional Fellow on the Hill back in 1996. I was so pleased to see young women from all walks of life and diverse cultures—much like the real, interdependent world we live in–at TMH.
I have included TMH in my estate planning because I want TMH to continue to help motivated young women who come to DC to fulfill their intellectual destinies.”

“I lived here in 1993 when Bill Clinton had just been inaugurated. It’s amazing that it looks exactly the same—like a snapshot of history.”
"I have such fond memories of TMH at this time of year .... I moved into TMH mid December and was not traveling home to celebrate the holidays with family, due to the timing of my move to DC and new job start date. TMH staff and board members made being away from home less painful and found me ... such wonderful community and memories"
