Building Equitable Access To Affordable Homeownership

Homeownership is one of the strongest tools for building intergenerational wealth and stability. We’re helping DC & NOVA families with low incomes break the cycle of poverty with a safe, decent home to call their own.

Announcing the New Habitat DC-NOVA!

We’re proud to announce DC Habitat is joining forces with Habitat of Northern Virginia to become Habitat DC-NOVA! We’re expanding services and helping even more families access safe, decent, and affordable housing on both sides of the Potomac River.
