DC's House of Ruth has plans in the works for a new all-affordable development east of the Anacostia River.
The nonprofit that provides support for women and families facing trauma, abuse and homelessness has submitted plans to DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) for a 40-unit residential project in DC's Fairlawn neighborhood. The existing buildings at 1815 and 1819 Minnesota Avenue SE (map) will be razed to make way for the new project.
"In total, the Project will replace 27 existing and outdated units with 40 new and modern units, all to serve a vulnerably population in the District," the BZA filing stated. "This will help further House of Ruth’s mission to provide short- and long-term housing for women and families affected by domestic violence."
The new building will exclusively house women and families directly impacted by domestic violence. House of Ruth anticipates residents will have incomes between 0% and 30% of the are median family income. The development will also include green space, a courtyard, and a play area for children.
