Thank you for being there for the communities we serve.
We offer two ways to support MHP’s mission and help us do more in 2021:
In the time of pandemic, the way we deliver our programs may have changed, but our focus remains unwavering: housing people, empowering families, and strengthening neighborhoods.
In 2020, we added 110 homes to our portfolio, preserving affordable homes in the District with our acquisition of Crescent Park Village in gentrifying Southeast DC.
The pandemic and its restrictions made families’ needs more urgent today than ever. With young students learning from home, our role in closing the achievement gap and providing a constant presence has expanded, making sure our neediest students are not left behind. With pandemic restrictions came the loss of family income, medical expenses, difficulties accessing healthcare. We pivoted to support our families where they need it most: connecting them with resources and bringing help directly into our communities: food, Covid testing, flu shots, employment resources, financial assistance.
Small neighborhood businesses are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic restrictions. We work with them to find creative ways to continue serving their customers, keep staff employed, and survive the economic pressures. From creating inviting outdoor spaces for restaurants, to promotional activities, to helping them access assistance and apply for grants and loans, we are here for them.
