Homes for a New Start
Make new friends by helping others find their place in the world. InnerCity Collaborative Community Development Corporation connects families to housing assistance programs in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. We work as a resource and referral program for homeless families in the District to find places for rent. Our organization is hoping to open our own haven in the future; we are still in the planning stages. Eventually we will operate a temporary facility for people to gather their lives together. For now, we navigate, find resources, and assist with down payments and even assist in providing furniture. We look for low-cost and market value furniture to furnish places for families that are getting back on their feet.
Helping others get back on track includes helping them heal from hidden wounds. Our counseling services helps people in a positive way when there has been some dysfunction in family relations or dynamics. We utilize spiritual counseling and an interfaith approach to provide you with someone to talk to with issues, especially regarding mental health. We can even help those of the Islamic faith and connect you with one of our Muslim brothers. If you prefer a more secular form of counseling, we can refer you to professional counselor, as we have a child psychologist and adult psychologist who we work with. You can rely on our volunteers and paid staff since they are trained in mental health and first aid.
