A reSPIN project!

Congress Heights on the Rise (CHotR) launched June 27, 2008 by Congress Heights resident, Nikki Peele. Realizing the huge void of information about Ward 8 in general, and inspired by the success of the first Ward 8 neighborhood-focused blog, And Now, Anacostia; the early goal of CHotR was to bring attention and focus to a Ward 8 neighborhood relatively unheard of beyond its borders.

CHotR’s now shares information on anything and everything related to Ward 7 and Ward 8. Our focus is on DC neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River, and the people who know it best — community residents and stakeholders.
