The House DC

The House DC is breaking cycles of poverty, homelessness, incarceration, and unemployment by providing at-risk youth in Anacostia with comprehensive services to help them establish healthy and sustainable futures.

 

WHAT WE DO

The House DC provides services for personal and spiritual growth, nutritional support, and artistic outlets, as well as academic mentorship and job training that prepares students for their next stage of life. We work directly with each of our students to understand their needs, help cultivate their talents, and build a supportive community.

Our Work in Anacostia

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.

“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.”

“I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

News & Events

Summer/Fall

Living through a pandemic hasn’t been easy, but our youth continue to press forward. Our students took the initiative to not only study the life of Joseph, but to carry that story through their neighborhoods and households.

“Expect nothing, appreciate everything.”

This was Rosetta Boyd’s favorite quote. Rosetta loved to discuss The House DC’s work with her daughter and longtime House supporter, Tracye. We are honored that Tracye has chosen to make a special donation to The House as a tribute to her mother’s memory and legacy of selfless generosity.
