Community of Hope makes three primary promises to the community.
Caring for Families – We offer quality healthcare and stable housing to the most vulnerable mothers, fathers, and children who struggle with health and often experience homelessness.
Improving Lives - We focus on the strengths of each person, as they create stable lives for themselves and promising futures for their children.
Leading Change – Through partnerships and innovation, we work toward transforming systems to serve our neighbors better.
Caring for Families. Improving Lives. Leading Change.
Community of Hope’s Family Health and Birth Center moved to 2120 Bladensburg Road to Washington DC's Langdon neighborhood in March 2022. We are excited about this move and the opportunities our new location will bring to our dedicated team and patients. Our new space has more than doubled in size – allowing us to grow with our patient community.
The Center includes a nationally accredited Birth Center and provides a range of healthcare services for your entire family. We offer same-day appointments for urgent visits, as well as appointments within three days for most other visits. Free parking is available on site.
People at risk of experiencing homelessness face many obstacles in search of a stable environment to thrive. Our city has different systems set up to serve families with children who are experiencing homelessness or for individuals without children – and they can both be difficult to navigate.
Demetria, a mom at our newest program called Bridge housing, has faced many barriers in navigating systems while supporting her family. For the safety of herself and her children, she needed to leave her home, but she wanted as few disruptions as possible for her children. Leaning on the care of her family, Demetria made the difficult decision to have her kids stay with them so that the children could avoid the shelter system.
The Family Health and Birth Center has a long history of supporting women and families. As we transition to the new and expanded Family Health and Birth Center, Community of Hope wanted to reflect on the history and impact of the building we are saying goodbye to. We invite you to read the edited version of our conversation with Midwife Cassandra Burrell as she reflects on both her personal and professional history with FHBC, and her excitement about continuing to grow with the staff and families at the new location.
Community of Hope provided over 40,900 quality, compassionate healthcare visits to 11,271 patients in 2020 across Washington, DC.

Community of Hope has grown to serve 7x as many patients and homeless families in the last 15 years.
It all starts with a place to call home. Community of Hope worked to end and prevent homelessness for 1,142 families, including 3,688 individuals in 2020.
Community of Hope works to improve health and end family homelessness to make Washington, DC more equitable.
