Founded in 1988, Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C. (DC Habitat)'s mission is to reduce poverty housing and homelessness in the nation's capital by building decent, affordable, energy-efficient homes for those in need. We're building a D.C. where everyone has a safe, decent place to live. We build and sell affordable homes, provide low-cost home repairs, offer financial education, and advocate for policies that create more housing for struggling families in the nation's capital. With the help of public, private, nonprofit, and foundation partners we help working families realize the dream of homeownership, breaking the cycle of poverty, and building strong communities. Because when families have a stable place to call home, they can stop getting by and start to thrive.
