Deeply Affordable Homes
Did you know that “affordable housing” can range widely in rent cost? An apartment is technically “affordable” at 80% area median income (AMI). The 2017 D.C. AMI was $82,372, which puts an 80% AMI unit out of reach for many renters. Deeply affordable homes qualify at 30% AMI and below. Creating equity means increasing the number of homes that are deeply affordable for those who face the highest barriers to renting.
Onsite & Nearby Services
Access to childcare, financial planning resources, and career training are just a few of the things people need to succeed. Placing those resources within walking distance eases the logistical burden by creating a network of support grounded in the community. Jubilee Housing provides many such services onsite and partners with neighborhood organizations that provide many more. We believe combining housing and support services is critical to creating opportunity.
The greatest predictor of lifelong success comes down to the zip code you’re born into. Living in a thriving community affords people resources that greatly impact educational and career opportunities, and can affect physical and mental health outcomes. Creating greater access to these life-changing resources is why Jubilee Housing intentionally creates homes and operates services in the Columbia Heights, Adams Morgan and Mount Pleasant communities.
