Mission Statement

Housing Up builds thriving communities in Washington, DC by developing affordable housing and offering comprehensive support services to homeless and low-income families. We believe that people who have safe, affordable housing and genuine opportunities are empowered to transform their lives.

Description

Housing Up is a non-profit organization that provides housing and supportive services to homeless and at-risk families so that they can make transformational changes in their lives.

Housing Up’s resident services team provides programming in five categories: Health and Wellness, Employment, Community Building, Tenant Education and Youth Enrichment. Our resident services manager and coordinators work on-site at our properties to implement programming and services such as tutoring, one-on-one mentoring for education and career development, college application assistance, community gardens, HIV screenings, community events for the holidays, and special classes, like yoga and cooking, taught by qualified volunteers. Our youth enrichment services include a weekly tutoring program, character development, arts education and computer literacy. These services give children and young adults a greater chance of success in high school and college. The goal of the program is to increase the independence and stability of the families we serve.
