HomeAid Northern Virginia (HANV) leverages the resources of the home building community and its trade partners to undertake new construction or major renovations to homeless shelters, transitional houses and other facilities that help people experiencing homelessness gain stability and a roof over their heads. HomeAid projects help to significantly reduce the construction costs to care provider organizations, thereby allowing them to redirect those dollars into programs and services for homeless families and individuals.
HANV was started in 2001 by NVBIA members. As it has grown and taken on more projects in the community, it has become an independent nonprofit, operating as a chapter of the national HomeAid America network, yet maintaining close ties to NVBIA and our network of builders. HANV has completed 165 renovation and construction projects on homeless shelters and supportive housing facilities, valued at more than $19 million in retail construction costs and saving homeless service providers $13M – or 46% – of the retail cost. In total, these projects provide housing and stability to an estimated 196,000 homeless and vulnerable local individuals.
