Our House is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing abused, homeless, orphaned, and abandoned male youth from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., with a chance at success in life. Celebrating 20 years of rehabilitating at-risk young men, the organization works to ensure its trainees become productive, tax-paying members of their communities.
Our House stands out from the myriad programs for at-risk youth because of the holistic and structured approach developed at its inception in 1993. Today, the program is rooted in vocational and academic education including carpentry, organic farming, beekeeping, pottery, woodcrafts, animal husbandry, GED preparedness, computer skills and more—trainees learn life skills that build confidence and self-esteem.
Community service also plays an important role in the Our House experience. One of the core values imparted to every trainee is the value of giving back, and, to date, Our House has contributed more than 19,000 service hours back to the community. They have received countless County, State and Federal Awards for their program including the Thomas Jefferson Award for Public Service. To learn more, follow this link: www.our-house.org
