Habitat is proud to launch Neighborhood Revitalization (NR), a block by block approach to building stronger neighborhoods. NR will help serve more families in the Greater Washington Shores area with an expanded array of products, services and partnerships. Habitat will respond to community priorities and work hand-in-hand with residents to revive their neighborhood and enhance their quality of life. This is a holistic approach to creating change in our neighborhoods that have the greatest need for stability. By joining residents, nonprofits, businesses and local government, we can discover what is needed most in a neighborhood, and helping to implement a shared vision of revitalization.

Creating Greater Impact

While new home construction remains at the core of what we do, Habitat cannot transform neighborhoods through new construction alone. By launching NR, we are able to work more intensively within a neighborhood to meet resident needs and aspirations, ultimately improving the quality of life for not only residents of these neighborhoods, but for the city as a whole.

Habitat improves the lives of families through the following services:

New Home Construction
Address the need to create new affordable homeownership opportunities in the focus area.

Repairs
Preserves the exterior of homes by focusing on minor repairs, painting and landscaping
