What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

HomeAid Northern Virginia builds new lives for families and individuals experiencing homelessness through housing and community outreach. According to a report by the National Low Income Housing Coalition, renters in Northern Virginia need to earn $23.13 per hour to afford the area's fair market rent of $1,203 for a two-bedroom apartment. That rent translates into a 177-hour work week at minimum wage ($7.25 per hour), making low- and moderate-income families housing insecure and just a job loss, one medical emergency, etc. away from homelessness. There are about 5,783 homeless individuals living in Northern Virginia according to the 2019 Point-in-Time Count. On average there are around 1,500 beds available at shelters in our region—not enough for each homeless individual on a given night. There is an urgent need for more safe, affordable housing in our region—paired with programs and services like financial education, workforce training, and parenting classes.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Shelter Program

HomeAid’s Shelter Program provides renovations and new construction for homeless organizations' properties. HomeAid leverages its relationship with the homebuilding industry to complete these projects at little or no cost to the organizations.

Population(s) Served

HomeAid supplements the work of local shelters and non-profits in many ways, including hosting events to enrich the lives of families experiencing homelessness, organizing drives, and convening local homeless service providers in an annual Housing Forum.

Population(s) Served

Our Turnover Program, implemented in 2018, is designed to help organizations quickly prepare units that need new flooring and fresh paint before new families can move in.

The program focuses on replacing carpet with luxury vinyl planking (LVP), which has a higher upfront cost but is far more durable and easier to keep clean—meaning long-term savings for HomeAid partners and dignified, healthy spaces for the clients you serve.

Population(s) Served

The homes and shelter facilities we build and renovate are beautiful, welcoming, and comforting, but they are missing some of the most basic items that a person needs to recover from homelessness and get back on their feet. Filling refrigerators with much-needed food or homes with new kitchen utensils and bathroom supplies is just one way that your volunteering efforts can make a positive difference in someone’s life!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

HomeAid Northern Virginia builds new lives for families and individuals experiencing homelessness through housing and community outreach. HomeAid’s goal is to be the go-to building resource for Northern Virginia service providers. Through our Shelter Program, HomeAid builds and renovates non-profit facilities at a 30-100% savings thanks to the generosity of our Builder Captains and Trade Partners. This savings enables our Shelter Partners to improve their facilities while focusing their limited resources on critical programming that helps their clients become self-sufficient.

Our Shelter Services Program fills in the gaps by providing donations of household goods and food items for projects we’ve recently completed, as well as planning outreach and enrichment events for individuals and families experiencing homelessness and providing training for Shelter staff through our Annual Housing Forum. These programs help families and individuals experiencing homelessness gain stability by providing a roof over their heads and by offering the tools necessary to rebuild their lives on a secure foundation of self-confidence and hope.

HomeAid Northern Virginia leverages the talents, generosity, and expertise of the building community, in the form of in-kind donations of work completed, combined with other fundraising efforts, to provide needed repairs and to complete building projects. We undertake events and fundraising campaigns to acquire the funds necessary for projects and other services to the homeless community.

HomeAid's relationship with the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association is an important factor in recruiting people and companies from within the industry to participate on our projects. Additionally, HomeAid's influential Board of Directors has ensured that even during economic downturns or national pandemics, our projects and mission are fulfilled. We partner with many of the local service providers to understand the needs of the homeless and provide the services and resources that no one else is providing, such as our annual Housing Forum, Baseball Night/Concert in the Afternoon, and Helping Hands program.

Progress in our mission can be measured by the increased capacity of the shelters to provide additional housing as a result of projects completed. Many of our projects have a direct influence on the quantity and quality of care that local providers are able to offer, including increased bed space. In this way, HomeAid Northern Virginia has been greatly successful.

Since 2001 we’ve invested $18 million in building a better community; donated $11 million in labor, time, materials, and expertise; and have changed 167,000 lives for the better.

In our 19 year history, HomeAid Northern Virginia has completed 150 renovations and builds across the region for 40+ of our non-profit partners who work to help people experiencing homelessness. We have converted office space into a home for women reentering the community after incarceration; added and preserved thousands of beds across the region for individuals, families, youth, and children experiencing homelessness; built a 5,000 square foot safe haven for victims of sex trafficking; updated a building that is home to 14 men who are overcoming addiction and chronic homelessness; renovated a space for survivors of domestic violence; built out a food pantry that serves 60+ families a day in one of the wealthiest counties in the US, and so much more.

The work that we do saves our non-profit partners the funds necessary to give countless people a safe and stable place to call home and access to critical wraparound programs and services, and our projects help their clients realize they are truly worthy of more.

We've completed 150 projects to date, and look forward to the next 150+.
