Rating: 5 stars   26 reviews 863

Address:

3684 Centerview Dr. Suite 110B Chantilly VA 20151 USA

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.

Reviews for HOMEAID Northern Virginia INC

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

HomeAid is a wonderful organization that we have the pleasure to serve. Miller and Smith and our many subcontractors are thankful that there is an organization like HomeAid that serves the community and give us the opportunity to put our resources to use in such a purposeful and helpful way.

Shelter House has partnered with HomeAid for many years through Women Giving Back and Night at the Ballpark, and our clients have benefited wonderfully from this partnership. This past year we partnered with HomeAid to renovate a single family home serving clients at Artemis House. Working with HomeAid was such a wonderful experience- the staff at HomeAid truly care about building new lives for the homeless, and they are an asset to partners like Shelter House .

I have worked with directly with HomeAid over the last five (5) years on various projects. The resources that HomeAid is able to bring to nonprofit organizations like ours is truly "amazing and invaluable". Christy and her team have always put our needs as a customer first making sure that the final product would meet our expectations and the needs of those we serve. The impact of their partnership can be witnessed throughout many of our program properties and the lasting relationships built especially mine is truly exemplifies the HomeAid impact. Our community has a true champion of hope and change in HomeAid

I spent 25 yrs as a nonprofit exec before starting my own consulting firm. Through my company I have had the privilege of working with HomeAid as a meeting facilitator and as their strategic planning consultant. I have never before worked with a group that is more dedicated and focused and has an incredible ability stay laser focused on their mission yet execute in such a comfortable, non-stressed way. Even during the grand recession when the housing market was dead, the housing execs on the HomeAid NoVA board continued to fund the work and actively participate at all levels.

I had the honor of chairing HOMEAID Northern Virginia's Annual Gala in 2008. That year the economy was in shambles, but everyone involved worked tirelessly to support a charity that partners builders and their subs to build and renovate homeless shelters and so wonderfully supports other non profits that serve the homeless. HOMEAID Northern Virginia is still a rather unknown charity to many in the Washington, DC metro area, but the work they do is truly substantial.

Several years ago I got involved with HOMEAID Northern Virginia as a volunteer. I began by working on the sponsorship committee for their annual Gala and in 2008 I chaired the Gala. The work of this charity is amazing and profound. They partner builders and what they do best - build and renovate - with their subs to build and renovate homeless shelters for other nonprofits who serve the homeless in northern Virginia. People on the board and committees and sponsors ALL generously give of their time, their expertise, their talents, and their resources. The work of HOMEAID also serves to educate and support other charities who assist the homeless. I know from firsthand experience with this charity it remains one of the best kept secret in northern Virginia and helps many!

HomeAid has assisted my organization and the clients we serve for many years. Most recently, their volunteer efforts to put on the "Night at the Ballpark" has been extremely successful. In the past, they have helped us renovate housing units for our transitional housing programs. I cannot say enough good things about HomeAids work - truly wonderful seeing what they continuously do for the community!
