More Justice HousingTM Coming to D.C.

Jubilee Housing is expanding the availability of justice housingTM in D.C. with a new property the organization has acquired in the heart of Adams Morgan. The currently vacant commercial building, located at 1724 Kalorama Road NW, will be renovated into 25 deeply affordable homes and space for vital community services. 
With larger apartments increasingly scarce in the District, two-thirds of the units will be two- and three-bedroom apartments designed for families. Likewise, two-thirds of the units will be available to families experiencing the greatest burden paying their rent—those who earn 30 percent or less of area median income or about $35,150 for a family of four.

Sharps came to Jubilee after serving as vice president of Resident Services at Nevada HAND (Housing and Neighborhood Development), in Las Vegas, where he created and oversaw high-quality programming for residents of affordable housing. A native Marylander, he returns to the DMV, where he still has family living. Read More...

People & Places

While chasing down ice cream trucks, playing basketball on outside courts, and seeking air conditioning where ever it can be found are common summer pastimes just about anywhere in D.C., there’s another tradition kids in the Jubilee Housing community look forward to each summer: a trip down the Shenandoah river.
