The National Health-Care Foundation for the Deaf, a non-profit organization, was established in Washington, D.C. on March 1972 in cooperation with the Saint Elizabeths Hospital. This was established to provide the independent living skills and housing programs for deaf individuals with social and emotional problems.

This house is located at 1203 Otis Street in Northeast part of Washington, D.C. This housing program includes training in independent living skills, social relationship skills, and leisure/recreational skills.
