THE HOUSE DC’S VISION IS TO TRANSFORM AND EMPOWER THE LIVES OF INNER-CITY YOUTH AND THEIR FAMILIES THROUGH CHRIST BY GIVING THEM HOPE, A PRODUCTIVE FUTURE, AND A CHANGED COMMUNITY.
A LOCAL MISSION
THE HOUSE 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
