There’s no place like home… Well, for some of us.
But for others, home isn’t such a nice place. For some, it’s a building in major disrepair, a space that’s horribly overcrowded — or even worse, a place that doesn’t exist at all.
You’ll find them not just in third world countries, but here, in the shadow of D.C.’s mighty monuments, on the streets of our nation’s capital. They are our neighbors. And just as our museums and memorials belong to the D.C. community, so do the sub-standard homes of our city’s less fortunate.
At Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C., we believe that all our neighbors deserve safe, comfortable homes they can afford – and there’s no better way to build our communities than to all lend a hand. Because when we all donate what we can – whether it be time or talent or money – we can build more decent, affordable homes for those in need.
When individual volunteers, businesses, faith-based organizations and other groups come together and work as one, we can build faster, greener, more efficiently. And eventually all our neighbors can live in houses they truly want to call home.
Simply stated, our mission is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness in the nation’s capital by building affordable, energy- and resource-efficient homes for people in need.
