Target demographics: area shelters provide life-changing services to the homeless and victims of domestic abuse
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help to restore hope and renew lives by working at the Women Giving Back store, helping to sort clothing or to provide assistance to customers in finding clothing that fits and suits them. Offer women and children the opportunity to make a new start!
Geographic areas served: Northern Virginia
Programs: the Shelter Program in which we connect with builders in the community in order to provide in-kind donations to complete necessary renovations and building projects for Northern Virginia shelters. The renovations and building projects allow community shelters to provide a stable, safe environment in which the homeless and those in danger of homelessness can work to create for themselves a new beginning built out of hope and dignity. HomeAid's work raising funds and connecting trade and shelter partners enables shelters to serve more families in the area and to reserve their own funding resources for the provision of life-changing assistance, such as job skill development.
HomeAid's program, Women Giving Back, provides donated clothing to women and children from area shelters free of charge, enabling them to enter the workforce or the educational system with appropriate clothing, providing a fresh start for those in need.
HomeAid Northern Virginia celebrated its 11-year anniversary doing what it does best—changing lives. Thanks to 7 Builder Captains and dozens of trade partners, HANV invested nearly $620,000 into the renovation and completion of homeless shelter projects throughout Northern Virginia – 61% of the costs were donated, thereby allowing care providers to focus their own funds on programs and services that directly help the homeless.
Over 2,100 people were served in 2012, a number that will grow exponentially as people transition out of the renovated facilities and new individuals and families move in.
