Marshall Heights Community Development Organization

Formed in 1979, Marshall Heights Community Development Organization (MHCDO) works to help residents of D.C.’s 7th Ward reach their full potential.  To do so, MHCDO has successfully developed on its own or in partnership with others a 60-unit supportive housing facility, a 469-unit garden-style apartment complex, a 220,000-square-foot complex of retail/office space which includes a major supermarket, 20,000 square feet of warehouse/industrial space, and over 150 affordable homes that have been sold to low- and moderate-income buyers.  Currently, MHCDO is collaborating with several other partner organizations to create Skyland Town Center, a mixed-used project with 342,000 square feet of retail space and 480 residential units.  To help area residents access the construction jobs created through this project, the Skyland team partnered with area nonprofits to create Skyland Workforce Center, which provides job placement services and a range of programs to improve residents’ education and skills.
