Mission Statement

The mission of MHCDO is to help grow Ward 7 into the District of Columbia's most welcoming, prospering, livable community for everyone.

Description

The Marshall Heights Community Development Organization is a nonprofit community-based organization that has undertaken community development activities in the Ward 7 area of Washington, DC since 1979.

MHCDO has successfully developed on its own or in partnership with others a 60-unit supportive housing facility, a 469-unit garden-style apartment complex, 220,000 square feet of retail/office space, 20,000 square feet of warehouse/industrial space, and over 150 homes sold to low- and moderate-income buyers.

To enhance its development activities, MHCDO operates a number of programs designed to expand economic opportunities, increase self-sufficiency, and improve the quality of life for individuals and families. Services include housing and financial counseling, supportive housing for individuals, families and persons with special needs, home buying education and assistance, business development services, socialization services for mentally ill seniors, and emergency food. For those seeking employment or a career change, MHCDO provides career counseling, job search training and resources, job training and placement services, and GED preparation classes.

MHCDO has 42 staff members and is governed by a 65-member broad-based community board of directors. MHCDO's success stems from its community governance, collaborations and partnerships, and holistic approach to community development.
