DC Habitat for Humanity

Founded in 1988, DC Habitat for Humanity (DC HFH) works to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness in the nation’s capital by building affordable, energy- and resource-efficient homes for God’s people in need. DC Habitat for Humanity sells homes to families who are ineligible for conventional financing. We offer no-profit, no-interest, 25 year mortgages for our buyers. Prospective homeowners make a $500 down payment and contribute 300 hours of ‘sweat equity’ towards construction of their own home. As of March 2006, DC Habitat has completed 86 homes and renovated 75 low-income cooperative units.
