Yachad, means together in Hebrew, is a District of Columbia nonprofit organization that mobilizes the resources—technical, financial and human—from the larger community to revitalize lower income neighborhoods throughout the District of Columbia and the greater metropolitan area. We do this by engaging volunteers, both skilled and unskilled, who repair and renovate homes, community spaces, and commercial property. Our work serves to encourage understanding between communities that are so often disconnected. Yachad is motivated in our cause by the Jewish tradition of tikkun olam—repairing the world.
