The House DC’s mission is to transform and empower the lives of inner-city youth and families, through Christ, by giving them hope, a productive future, and a changed community.

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.
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.
“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, ‘Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you’ — when you already have it with you.” — Proverbs 3:27-28, NIV

“I normally pray when I’m going through hard times. I don’t pray when I’m about to have fun, but I get it — we need God in the fun times just like we need him in the hard times,” another student added.
Our mission is to affirm the self-worth of young adults between the ages of 17-30, by spring-boarding them into their identified careers and preparing them to become responsible adults who establish strong family structures and make positive contributions to society.
Since 2003, The House has partnered with Anacostia Senior High School and has a strong presence and relationship with the school. The graduation rate for high school seniors participating in our programs is close to 100%.
