Find Out What Brought this Mom to Tears — of Joy
More than six months ago, a single mom of a seven-year-old daughter, was struggling to make ends meet. As the sole bread-winner with part-time employment and no family support, she and her daughter found themselves homeless and seeking refuge at the Embry Rucker Community Shelter.
Thanks to the support of HomeAid Northern Virginia, BOWA, and their trade partners, this mom and daughter are now living in a newly renovated transitional housing condominium which includes all new flooring, new kitchen cabinetry, granite counter tops, microwave range hood, painting throughout plus plumbing and maintenance repairs.
When signing the lease and receiving the keys to her home, this humble and grateful mom was moved to tears.
HomeAid completed the $19,000 renovation of Cornerstones Housing Corporation’s (CHC) condo unit, for which CHC only had to pay about 30% of the costs. HomeAid builds and renovates homeless shelters, transitional houses and other facilities that help homeless people gain stability and a roof over their heads. HomeAid’s partners and resources help to significantly reduce the construction costs to shelter organizations, thereby allowing the shelters to redirect those dollars back into programs and services for their homeless clients.
