Kendall Carter, a senior studying marketing at Virginia Tech University. “I’m helping promote HomeAid to the general public and helping out at fundraising events and shelter projects. I’ve seen HomeAid in action and its impact on Northern Virginia’s homeless. Interning here is not only a learning experience, but a humbling experience as well.”

Special Events Intern
Connor Simmons, a junior studying business management at Florida State University. “I chose HomeAid because I wanted to get experience with a nonprofit where I felt like I could really make a difference. I’ve been surprised that such an affluent area is affected by homelessness; HomeAid really does have an important place in our community.”

Programs Intern
Nadia McQuade, a sophomore studying communications at Virginia Tech University. “I really wanted to help those who are homeless in Northern Virginia, and I’ve loved getting to go on site visits to see the progress of HomeAid’s many projects. They’re making a difference!” 

Fundraising Intern 
Sanaa Gull, a senior studying criminology and law & society at George Mason University.  “I wanted hands-on experience on how non-profit organizations work, and HomeAid has helped me better understand the needs of people in my community and the life-changing impact our work can have on them.”

Communications Coordinator Intern 
Faith Boruta, a first-year graduate student studying management and leadership at Liberty University. “Homelessness is an issue that defies the boundaries of public policy to affect all aspects of our society. Everybody deserves to feel safe in their own home, and HomeAid helps make that happen. I’ve had the privilege of spreading the word about the great work that HomeAid does, and I’m grateful for the opportunity.”
