Come Connect to Community!
District Bridges is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to enrich neighborhood vitality by bridging community engagement and economic development opportunities so individuals, businesses, and organizations can thrive together.
We are an official DC Main Streets Program funded through the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD). District Bridges is unique among the other DC Main Street organizations as we are the only multi-neighborhood program in the city. We are honored to serve the neighborhoods of Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant in Washington, DC’s Ward 1. The Columbia Heights Initiative and the Mount Pleasant Initiative, both programs of District Bridges, serve their respective neighborhoods individually through marketing and promotional opportunities, small business technical assistance, fun community-wide events. District Bridges recognizes both the individuality and the interconnected nature of each neighborhood through these sister programs.
