In 2020, HomeAid completed 6 renovation and turnover projects for 10 different non-profit organizations serving Northern Virginia and beyond. Thanks to the generosity of our Builder Captains and Trade Partners, we were able to cover 82% of the cost for these projects, which:
- Saved our shelter partners $245,803. Those funds could then be directed toward job skills and other programs designed to help people get back on their feet.
- Built or refurbished more than 4,000 square feet of space for shelters and programmatic spaces that serve those experiencing homelessness.
Harder to quantify, but no less tangible, is the role that this construction plays in giving individuals the confidence and opportunity needed to work toward a brighter future.
In addition to building safe housing and programmatic facilities for people in crisis, HomeAid supplements the work of our shelter partners in a variety of ways—collecting grocery store gift cards, diapers and baby wipes for families and single mothers in need, household essentials for those moving into a brand new HomeAid renovated facility, bringing hope to those who might not otherwise have any, and convening non-profit service providers and government officials to discuss important topics ranging from race relations to mental and personal health care.
