HomeAid builds new lives for the homeless through housing and community outreach. HomeAid Northern Virginia seeks to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach.  HomeAid’s goal is to be a major resource for Northern Virginia service providers through the construction and maintenance of housing for the homeless and the provision of free clothing to women and children from local shelters through our Women Giving Back (WGB) program.  Our programs serve a diverse mix of people within the homeless population, including victims of domestic violence; people with disabilities; those suffering from chronic physical or mental health issues; and homeless children and teens.

In 2001, members of the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association (NVBIA) formed HomeAid Northern Virginia (a chapter of HomeAid America) in the belief that the best way to solve homelessness is to ensure everyone has a safe place to live. HomeAid’s connections with the homebuilding industry ensure that we are able to secure significant donations of labor and resources to each of our shelter projects; HomeAid relies on the generosity and expertise of professional builders, trade partners, suppliers, manufacturers, and contractors to provide these much-needed renovations and building services.

Since our inception, homebuilders, trade partners, manufacturers, suppliers and subcontractors have generously donated more than $6.5 million to HomeAid’s projects – saving shelters more than 50% of construction costs – money that they have been able put back into the programs and services that truly enable homeless families and individuals to get back on the road to self-sufficiency.

Having a safe, stable home has an overwhelmingly positive impact on a person’s ability to lead a successful and fulfilling life and housing is the first step in overcoming the issues that lead to homelessness – those who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless need a home before they can focus on making changes in their lives.

Safe, dignified housing and clothing suited to entering the workforce give that boost of self-confidence that is so essential an element to long-term success.  HomeAid’s Shelter and Women Giving Back programs offer a second chance to those most in need in our community.

HomeAid Northern Virginia, Vint Hill Transitional Housing Renovation Helps End Cycle of Homelessness for Families – HomeAid Northern Virginia

With the recently completed renovation to the Vint Hill Transitional Housing Program’s facility in Warrenton, formerly homeless families now have upgraded housing in which to rebuild lives.

In a wealthy Virginia suburb, their cars are their beds

Read this compelling profile on aspects of homelessness in Fairfax County. "Sleeping in their cars, they are homeless but sort of not, a subset of a population officially classified as “unsheltered” and slowly shrinking in these suburbs of Washington, even as the number of people living in poverty continues to grow."
