HomeAid, Loudoun County, Volunteers of America, and Builder Captains Miller & Smith and Winchester Homes partnered to renovate an eight-unit transitional housing facility for homeless families and single women. The renovations were valued at $250,000 (at an 87% cost savings to the shelter) and included entirely new kitchens with granite countertops, seating and tables; upgraded bathrooms and shelving; laminate hardwood flooring in the entry and living areas; improved light fixtures, electrical systems and plumbing work; built-in storage; bedding, doors, blinds and wire closet shelving systems; and interior furnishings.

“This renovation is a vision that [HomeAid Executive Director] Christy Eaton and I shared,” said Russell K. Snyder, president of Volunteers of America Chesapeake, “with HomeAid and VOA being all about changing lives and giving people independence. So many people in our communities are living on the edge, and they’re thankful for whatever they have … but we knew that they could have a much better experience through this renovation. They’ll be happy to come home now.”
