The holiday season is all about giving back, and we want to recognize just some of the homebuilders that donated time, expertise and resources to essential charitable projects in our region this year. Take a look back at how builders gave back to the community in 2016.
Working in partnership with HomeAid Northern Virginia and Pathway Homes, Christopher Companies and several partners committed over $11,000 to update a home for women recovering from mental illness. Photo courtesy of HomeAid Northern Virginia.
In September, M/I Homes, 15 trade partners and HomeAid completed a $35,000 renovation of a three-bedroom townhome for Fauquier Family Shelter Services’ Vint Hill Transitional Housing Program. The newly updated home will help a single mother and her three children transition from homelessness to independence in a safe and stable environment. Photo courtesy of HomeAid Northern Virginia.
“The Brenda House,” a 5,000-square-foot home for girls in crisis, was made possible from contributions by Toll Brothers as well as 64 trade partners and HomeAid Northern Virginia. Under the direction of Youth for Tomorrow, this home will provide a safe haven for dozens of girls who have been victims of sexual or physical abuse. Photo courtesy of HomeAid Northern Virginia.
$85,000. That’s how much Van Metre Homes was able to raise through its Cornhole Challenge event in October. The proceeds from this fun event will help combat homelessness with the help of Final Salute, which has dedicated itself to ending homelessness among women veterans. In partnership with HomeAid, Final Salute will be able to use these funds to provide housing for up to 10 veterans and their children.
Also working together with HomeAid Northern Virginia and Final Salute, Winchester Homes is leading the renovation of a home in Fairfax County, VA, which will provide housing for up to ten homeless women veterans and their children. The renovations are expected to top $330,000, more than half of which will be funded by Winchester Homes, HomeAid and participating trade partners. Photo courtesy of HomeAid Northern Virginia.
Although this list is far from comprehensive and represents just a small portion of what homebuilders gave back to their communities in 2016, we would like to thank every homebuilder that dedicated time and funding to help families in crisis in our region this year.
