HomeAid Northern Virginia, Richmond American Homes, and 30 trade partners have completed a total renovation of an apartment at Vint Hill, owned by Fauquier Family Services Shelter. The nearly $40,000 project took place on a former Army base featuring 75-year old brick structures; the land and buildings were turned over to the County in the late 1990s, with one set of buildings reserved for transitional housing.

“The buildings are well-constructed, but due to age and skyrocketing maintenance costs, a few units needed far more than our budget could support,” said Danielle Ellis, executive director for Fauquier Family Shelter Services. “We’re very excited that HomeAid and partners could take on this project; it will allow us to serve another entire family, most typically a single mom with children who are 18 or under. Some of our families are simply underemployed and can’t maintain housing costs in this region, or life has hit a rough patch through divorce, illness, or a job loss that landed them in homelessness. Our transitional program gives them the time they need before they’re able to qualify for their own place; we teach them budgeting, debt reduction, and other skills that help get them in a financial place to launch with the discipline to maintain their independence.”
