At Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia, we understand that housing is deeply interwoven with social issues, both past and present. When talking about housing, it’s important to address issues such racism and health, as both play a critical role in how families can or cannot access affordable homeownership opportunities.

To build a better and more just Northern Virginia, we need to build communities that are diverse and inclusive. By better understanding past and current challenges, we can better achieve our mission.
