HomeAid Completes Eighth Project for Reston Interfaith

enews_photo_bowa_floorsHomeAid Northern Virginia, Builder Captain BOWA and Reston Interfaith have together changed the life of a single mom and her seven-year-old daughter, who just six months ago were homeless and struggling to make ends meet. Today, they’re living in a newly renovated transitional housing condominium with all new flooring, new kitchen cabinetry, sink, lighting, granite counter tops, microwave range hood, interior painting throughout and upgraded plumbing and electrical systems. BOWA and its seven trade partners also focused on improving the functionality and safety of the unit, installing combination smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and bringing the electrical system up to code.

This marks the eighth time that HomeAid has worked with Reston Interfaith to make much-needed changes to one of its transitional homes.

“HomeAid is known for changing lives, and when this humble and grateful mom signed the lease and received the keys to her new home, she was moved to tears,” said Nicole De Lima, asset manager, Housing and Community Development for Reston Interfaith. “And since Reston Interfaith only paid for about 30 percent of the costs, it allowed us to redirect thousands of dollars back into programs and services for our clients.”

Thanks to Builder Captain BOWA and to all of the trade partners for the Reston Interfaith project!
