Imagine a just city where everyone has a home.

D.C. can be that city. And churches can help make it happen.

Just Homes works to mobilize and equip faith communities in D.C. to live out their calling to biblical justice by meeting the housing needs of the city. We long to see a just city where everyone has a home and believe churches can play a unique role in realizing this vision. By educating and convening faith communities to collaboratively build housing, invest locally in justice housing efforts, and serve as neighbors to low-income households in their communities, churches can significantly expand access to housing that is not only affordable, but just. We invite faith communities to ask themselves: what is our role in pursuing housing justice?

 
They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat.
— Isaiah 65:21-22 (NIV)

Build

Churches in D.C. own enough vacant land to house nearly all of the 30,000 extremely low-income households without adequate housing in our city. Just Homes walks alongside churches to vision-cast and explore how they might transform that land into justice housing, providing both education and resource connections.

Invest

Financing is a major barrier to affordable housing development, but individuals and churches can steward their finances in ways that support justice housing development. Just Homes educates individuals and churches about these innovative financial tools and ways to be justice-minded residents of their communities.

Serve

Low-income households face numerous challenges while transitioning into stable, affordable homes. Just Homes supports households transitioning into permanent, independent housing by connecting them to peer mentorship & moving assistance. In doing so, we aim to facilitate mutually-beneficial neighboring relationships.
