Northern Virginia has one of the most expensive housing markets in the United States and it’s often difficult for working families to find housing within their budget. For over 40 years, Cornerstones and the Cornerstones Housing Corporation (CHC) have been helping families and individuals by providing a variety of affordable housing options in our area.
The Cornerstones Housing Corporation owns 54 townhouses throughout Reston, Herndon, and Centreville. Our townhomes are rented at affordable rates to residents who earn half or less than the area’s median income. Our transitional townhouse tenants receive supportive services, goal setting and counseling provided by Cornerstones case managers.
The addition of this unit to Cornerstones existing stock of housing that is affordable is vital to substantially meet long-term housing program sustainability for vulnerable citizens. In addition to preserving these units as affordable upon acquisition, rehabilitation including accessibility modifications will be completed. The result will be an increase in the supply of accessible rental units that are affordable for the elderly special need populations at extremely low income.
The 103rd house is under sales contract and Cornerstones’ expects to close in May 2016.
For additional affordable housing help contact the Fairfax County Human Services Coordinated Services Planning at 703-222-0880 or connect with 211 Virginia to access more resources.
CHC partners with Quantum Management to support 48 apartments in Reston’s North Point neighborhood that are rented to working families for well under market rates.
