Welcome to MakeDC

JOSEPH'S HOUSE HEALING GARDEN: In May 2014, Joseph's House, a D.C. community that offers end-of-life care to homeless men and women with AIDS and other terminal diseases, won the first MakeDC Designing Dreams competition with its desire for a Healing Garden. On May 23, 2017, the construction finished and the garden opened. #GrowLove
