Builder Captain Schwartz Enterprises, led by long-term HomeAid Northern Virginia Board Member Barry Schwartz, and nine trade partners have just put the finishing touches on the final HomeAid project of the year, with a $15,000 renovation of one of Cornerstones [formerly Reston Interfaith] townhomes.
Improvements to the two-bedroom townhouse condominium, used as transitional housing for no- or low-income families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, included: repainting the entire interior; replacing carpet, wood laminate and ceramic tile throughout; replacing the hot water heater, bath and kitchen faucets and showerheads, toilet shut off valves and exterior hose bibs; installing new door hardware; replacing all smoke- and carbon monoxide detectors, ground fault breakers in bathrooms, exterior outlets and all interior light fixtures; inspecting the HVAC system and replacing all grills and registers; refreshing the front and rear yard mulch beds and replacing the foundation plantings; and cleaning the entire home top to bottom.
If your organization serves individuals or families affected by homelessness and has housing or program space that is in need of extensive renovations or you have a bigger construction vision for the future, HomeAid can help!
Serving as a Builder Captain may be one of the most satisfying construction projects you, your partners, and your staff will ever experience.
Trade Partners are the backbone of our accomplishments! Each HomeAid project relies on the generosity, expertise, and commitment of many partners working together.
