DC Habitat’s mission is to provide decent, affordable homes for hard-working, low-income families. The number of houses we build each year depends on the money we raise, and our corporate partnerships are critical to helping us close the gap for hard-working families across the District. We partner with businesses, faith-based groups, community organizations, and partner families to build brighter futures for local families and help them attain the dream of homeownership. We build homes year round and there are many of sponsorship levels to choose from!
