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 don't need to look far to find those in need of housing. 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.
