What is the Abrahamic House? 

Abrahamic House creates a dynamic space to learn, share, celebrate, connect, volunteer, and teach. We achieve this through a unique year-long fellowship and capstone impact presentation.

Abrahamic House is a multifaith incubator for social change. We are a co-living, co-learning, and co-creating space to connect, pray, organize, and serve. Our mission is to build sustainable interfaith learning and action across communities in order to foster an environment of respect, justice, and social change. 

Where is the house located? 

As of now, the Abrahamic House is located in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC.
