HomeAid and Miller & Smith Complete $95,000 Renovation for Homestretch

Chantilly, VA, October 21, 2014 — HomeAid Northern Virginia, which builds and renovates facilities for the homeless, announced today the completion of a $95,000 project for Homestretch in Falls Church. The condominium renovation, led by Builder Captain Miller & Smith and 19 trade partners, provides a new home for a single mother and her children.

 “The Homestretch renovation was an opportunity to give a family a new beginning,” said Scott Alford, VP of production, Miller & Smith.We completely transformed the condominium from top to bottom as well as professionally decorated and furnished it.  It became so much more than just paint and cabinets — it became a home.  We can participate and help because of the generosity of our subcontractors that always go above and beyond to donate their time and materials.”

 The renovation included new: floors, windows and doors; kitchen and appliances; bathroom; HVAC system, electrical fixtures, plumbing fixtures and window coverings; interior doors; and furnishings and décor specifically for the age and gender of the children who now live there.

 “Homestretch, a program for homeless families located in Falls Church, was extremely fortunate to have one of our most distressed units renovated by HomeAid and Miller & Smith,” said Christopher Fay, executive director, Homestretch. “But to call it a renovation does not adequately describe the incredible makeover of the unit; it was transformational, and went from being our worst unit to our best.  The new family coming in, a single mother (and victim of severe domestic violence), when seeing the home, fell to her knees in tears of joy and prayers of thanksgiving. Words can barely express our gratitude.”
