May 14, 2012– HomeAid Northern Virginia is partnering with Lincoln Property Company to renovate a transitional home for Reston Interfaith, enabling them to house another homeless family in need.
“Again, HomeAid answers to the need to support homeless families and those families at-risk of homelessness. Their mission is hand in glove with ours, which is to provide safe, attractive and affordable housing to community members in need,” said Nicole De Lima-Morris, assistant director of Housing and Community Development
Reston Interfaith Housing Corporation. “With the important complement of social service case management, families in Reston Interfaith homes receive support and services needed to grow toward self-sufficiency. The renovations on this town house will remake a home that anyone would appreciate. Thanks so much to HomeAid and Lincoln Property Company.”
The renovation of the three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath property is valued at $20,000 and includes: new appliances (range and dryer), painting and new carpet throughout, new blinds, updates to the bathrooms, replacing/updating smoke detectors, updating electrical outlets, landscaping, gutter cleaning, fence repair, shed cleaning and repair, and more.
“When HomeAid partners with organizations such as Reston Interfaith and Lincoln Properties, we can make a big impact in short amount of time,” said Michael J. Scheurer, HomeAid Northern Virginia President and Northern Virginia Community Outreach Officer for the Virginia Housing Development Authority. “These partnerships enable the transitionally homeless to live in safe, comfortable homes, and to plan for their futures.”
