As you may remember, Yachad has been working up at the 2nd Street Coop in the Ft. Totten neighborhood for the last year. We started installing ramps through the Ramp it Up! program and then again for a Mitzvah Party with Adat Shalom. The ramps made 6 units accessible from the outside. Now, with a grant from National Fair Housing Alliance, we are working to make these six units accessible from the inside as well. Jose Lopez Enterprises is doing beautiful work, renovating the bathrooms, doorways and kitchens. See the pictures below. Once the units are done, they will be made available for affordable rent for disabled DC residents.
Come help us paint the units on Memorial Day (May 30th) through our We the People Federal Holiday Program. Sign up now!
