Yachad’s mission is to bring communities together by preserving affordable homes and revitalizing neighborhoods throughout the District of Columbia and the greater metropolitan area. Yachad means “together” in Hebrew, and that is how we do our work through partnerships with homeowners, houses of worship, nonprofits, and other community stakeholders. We mobilize skilled and unskilled volunteers, invest financial resources, and, through our work together, transform people and properties. Our mission is rooted in the Jewish commitment to seek justice by engaging in acts of loving kindness. We welcome people of all faiths to share in our work to keep our communities diverse and vital.

For your mitzvah project, have a Mitzvah Party!
Mitzvah Party is a custom-fit program designed to offer a group of volunteers (friends, student groups, business cohorts) a chance to have a hands-on-experience repairing an area house, group home or community center side-by-side with those being assisted. This program is ideal for individuals looking to host an event for a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah), a team building exercise, or a group project. Hosts can customize their project’s time, day, location, etc. Bar/Bat Mitzvahs are encouraged to use this program as their mitzvah project.
