The Building Hope Capital Campaign will create safe, affordable, rental housing with supportive services for 30 families and 172 single adults, enabling them to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness and build stable and independent lives.
Why Affordable Housing?
Nearly half of the District’s affordable housing has disappeared over the past decade, leaving 7,300 men, women and children homeless. These individuals and families urgently need safe, affordable housing in order to stabilize their lives and become self-sufficient.
Affordable housing acts as a platform for other services, such as job training, that enable individuals to reach their full human potential. It is also less expensive than relying on emergency rooms, shelters and other costly institutions to serve the homeless.
Living [in affordable housing] is a great opportunity, a great stepping stone. SOME helps you with job search, resumes, schools for adults — the resources here are endless.”–Robert, father of Azaria
