Columbia Heights is the most diverse and densely populated neighborhood in the city. It is also the ward with the highest percentage of Latinos in the District.
The past decade has seen rapid redevelopment, economic growth and gentrification, bringing both positive changes and challenges for long-time residents. Urban poverty, rising housing prices, and sharp increases in violent crime are a stark contrast to new construction and economic revitalization.
Our vision is to create a community that bridges our ethnic and economic differences.
