For three women working to embrace their ongoing recovery from mental illness, having a stable home is critical to their ability to focus on their needs and futures. And now, thanks to an $11,000 project completed for Pathway Homes last month by HomeAid Northern Virginia, Builder Captain Christopher Companies, and seven trade partners, the women have a renovated and updated home in which to recover.
“Our company has a long history of supporting HomeAid and being involved members of NVBIA,” said Mike Sandkuhler, project manager for Christopher Companies, 2016 president for NVBIA and HomeAid board member. “It’s part of our shared mission to provide shelter for those who cannot provide it on their own, and it’s an honor to serve and to see all the good that comes out of our efforts. It’s not always easy coming to terms with how some people live, and anything we can do to provide and improve other community members’ homes is something we’re glad to do.”
This marks the first time HomeAid Northern Virginia has partnered with Pathway Homes, which provides permanent supportive housing to adults with serious mental illness and co-occurring disabilities in Northern Virginia.
