HomeAid Northern Virginia
Communications and Marketing Manager

Who We Are:
HomeAid Northern Virginia (HomeAid/HANV) is a charitable 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2001 as the philanthropic arm of the Northern Virginia building industry and serves as a local chapter of HomeAid America. HomeAid believes everyone is deserving of dignity and hope, and for individuals and families struggling with the uncertainty of finding a place to sleep at night and access to programs that support getting back on their feet, the security that comes with having a roof over one’s head and access to critical wraparound services will allow them to focus on the issues that caused them to become homeless in the first place. In our twenty-year history, HomeAid Northern Virginia has made a difference in the lives of over 196,000 individuals and families experiencing homelessness or who would otherwise be homeless in Northern Virginia and beyond. HomeAid makes the right match between our partners in the homebuilding industry who donate time, labor, materials, and expertise and nonprofit renovation and build needs—and manages these construction projects to reduce the financial and staff time burden on nonprofits so that they can focus on direct interventions with clients experiencing homelessness. Our work makes the entire system of safety net nonprofits more sustainable.

Through HomeAid’s Program, the core of our mission, HANV builds and renovates housing and programmatic facilities at a 30-100% savings thanks to the generosity of our professional Builder Captains and Trade Partners. To ensure everyone involved benefits from working with us, HomeAid manages the entire project from beginning to end. From the initial pairing of non-profit and professional building industry partners to handling building and county codes, to architecture and monitoring construction timeline and communication between all parties involved, and everything in between, HomeAid is there to make sure the projects finish on time and well under budget in most cases. This savings enables the service providers to improve and expand their facilities while focusing their limited resources on critical programming and wraparound services necessary to help clients become self-sufficient and move beyond homelessness and trauma.
