In 2019, Washington, DC was named the fastest gentrifying city in the country: residents and small businesses are being displaced and human connection is one of the casualties. District Bridges’ high-touch approach develops trusted relationships with business owners on each of its “Main Streets” – time spent learning about their challenges and goals and then working with them to support their survival and growth. What is good for local business is also good for the people who live, work, shop, and play in their neighborhoods. Residents and small businesses develop a sense of community and connection to place that is vital and mutually supportive. Now managing six of DC’s 28 Main Street programs, District Bridges supports community-based economic development, serving over 1,000 small businesses across Wards 1, 2, 3, and 4 and providing residents, old and new, with an on-ramp to connection.
