Our mission: to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

The goal of Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C is to reduce poverty housing and homelessness in the nation’s capital by building decent, affordable, energy-efficient homes for those in need.

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 lend a hand. Because when we all donate what we can – whether it’s time, talent or money – we can build more homes for those in need.


Since 1988, we've built homes in all four quadrants of the District, totalling more than 200 new and rehabilitated houses, which became homes for more than 300 DC residents. Currently, we're building in the neighborhoods of Ivy City and Deanwood in Northeast DC. We plan to increase our building capacity to construct even more homes in 2014, but we need your support to reach our goal! 


Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. We offer a "hand up, not a hand out"- meaning that we offer low-interest first mortgages to families ineligible for conventional financing options. Our partner families invest "sweat equity" into the construction of their homes, working alongside volunteers, our AmeriCorps members, and Habitat staff. For more information about how we work, updates on our construction sites, or how to get involved with Habitat, visit
