Imagine a just city where everyone has a home.

D.C. can be that city. And churches can play a unique role in realizing that vision. Let’s talk about how.

Just Homes is a housing initiative of The District Church that mobilizes and equips faith communities in D.C. to meet the housing needs of the city. We seek to connect the most vulnerable residents of the District of Columbia with housing that is just; partnering with local churches to do so. As followers of Jesus, committed to stewarding our God-given resources in pursuit of biblical justice, we long to see a just city where everyone has a home. We believe churches can realize this vision by building housing, investing locally in justice housing endeavors, and serving as neighbors to low-income households in their communities. 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 supports churches in casting their vision and overcoming the obstacles they face in transforming that land into justice housing.

Invest

Financing is a major barrier to affordable housing development. Just Homes educates individuals and churches about innovative financial tools designed to support the development of housing affordable to low-income populations across D.C. We invite you to join us in exploring what biblical stewardship looks like.

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.
