Building New Lives for Northern Virginia’s Homeless

Shelter Programs are the core of HomeAid’s mission. HomeAid pairs vetted non-profits with homebuilders and trade partners who renovate or build facilities and donate 30 to 100% of all costs. Our partner homebuilders and trade partners do what they do best: efficiently and beautifully build or renovate housing facilities. In the end, these projects are energy efficient and durable, resolve any existing safety issues, and increase program space.

Residents of these renovated or newly built facilities report that the beauty of the homes is something they have never experienced before in their lives. The new or renovated surroundings give them a sense of pride and they feel less stressed. HomeAid renovation and construction projects are an important part of helping families and individuals recover from homelessness.

In addition to the direct impact on individuals experiencing homelessness, these projects also increase the sustainability of the local non-profit safety net. HomeAid’s non-profit partners often do not have the funding, expertise, or staff time to undertake these projects. Rather than redirect resources from programs that help homeless families on their path to independence, HomeAid can provide upgrades at a great discount to the service provider—allowing them to invest in services rather than building expenses.

HomeAid makes our community stronger both by providing individuals in need with safe, stable homes, but also by strengthening the non-profits we work with. Explore the projects below to see how HomeAid has made a difference in your neighborhood.
