Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Homeless & Housing

Mission: HomeAid Northern Virginia builds and maintains homeless shelters and transitional housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives.

Results: In 2012 alone, 7 Projects Completed, Thousands of Lives Changed 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.

Target demographics: area shelters provide life-changing services to the homeless and victims of domestic abuse

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.

I've been associated with home building in Northern Virginia for twenty years and was exposed to HANV over ten years ago. Through the years I've been amazed at the consistent, professional and focused approach of the Board and staff at HomeAid. Their continuing efforts to help those in need truly demonstrate how much a caring group of people can do when they team together. Through volunteers, interns, staff and members HANV has positively impacted the lives of many thousands in our community who are down on their luck but looking for a helping hand and new start. Keep up the great work HomeAid Northern Virginia.

I was the marketing intern for HomeAid and they always had all thier supporters in mind when they made every decision. They're professional and very respectful and know how to make someone feel like part of the team. They have always worked hard and focused on what they needed to do in order to get things done. HomeAid's staff is kind, patient, and extremely easy to get along with. The workplace shows the same amount of care for eachother as they do for their clients.

I am the executive director of the HomeAid chapter in Houston and have always admired the amazing work done by the HomeAid Northern Virginia chapter. They are, without a doubt, one of the busiest chapters in our network and are great contributors to our national organization.

I interned at HomeAid Northern Virginia for about 4 months and based on my experience I truly believe they are a great non-profit. The staff is small but each member puts in so much time, energy, and attention to detail into every project and event they complete. It's amazing what the staff of 3 and a few seasonal interns are able to accomplish. From fundraising to shelter services and creating volunteer opportunities HomeAid Northern Virginia covers all the bases and is continuing to impact the lives of Northern Virginia's homeless in a positive way. HomeAid Northern Virginia recognizes the need for affordable housing and shelter services in the area and addresses it. As a member of the community I can attest that I am thankful to HomeAid for what they are doing for this area and its homeless individuals.
