Yachad remediates substandard housing conditions for Black and Brown homeowners in DC who lack the resources to make critical home repairs. The lack of safe housing in lower-income communities exacerbates health issues and perpetuates economic inequity across the city, especially in neighborhoods with gentrification or economic disinvestment. With the help of skilled local tradespeople, Yachad ensures that more multi-generational households have functioning kitchens with working appliances, plumbing and electrical systems in good condition, and resilient roofs. Staff assist homeowners in applying for public resources like weatherization and energy efficiency services. While homes are under repair, they also educate homeowners on finances, future repairs, and more. Serving over 140 people annually, Yachad helps neighbors create healthier homes and build wealth, allowing more families to have a stable place they call home for generations to come.
