DC Habitat continues to innovate with the construction of their net-zero passive homes, where solar technology is integrated into the design so homeowners pay virtually no utility bills for hot water, air conditioning or electricity. “The

house actually produces more energy than it uses. That is a tremendous boon to a low income family.”

Along with their partners, like City First Bank, DC Habitat for Humanity remains committed to constructing better lives for the District’s most underprivileged. And, as Slater sees it, “It’s a hand up, not a hand out.”
