Habitat DC-NOVA is proud to partner with local community organizations, businesses, and government agencies to provide critical home repair and aging in place services to residents in the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia. By helping individuals who cannot afford these modifications, we’re making their homes safe and healthy so they can continue living and thriving in their own homes and communities.
