Who We Are

The House DC is a life-changing experience.

The House is a safe haven, where youth and the community experience love. It gives young people hope and introduces them to the same Jesus that changed our lives. Our life-changing experiences give our youth a change of heart.  

MORE ABOUT US

Why Anacostia

Why is The House DC passionate about Anacostia?

Unemployment is 50% higher than the rest of DC, there’s a high level of drug abuse among children between 10-17 years old, and a large increase in violence over the last ten years. We want to change those stats.
