Builder Captains Miller & Smith and Winchester Homes and 32 trade partners helped the shelter realize an 85% savings on the cost of this renovation. All eight apartments now have maximum storage space and include new: kitchens with granite countertops, seating and custom-designed tables with peninsula tops; bathrooms with custom shelving; laminate hardwood flooring in the entry and living areas; light fixtures, electrical and plumbing; built-in storage by each bed; bedding, doors, blinds and wire closet shelving systems; and interior furnishings.
“It’s difficult to summarize just how much this renovation will positively impact the families and individuals that will live in these apartments,” said Russell S. Rosenberger, Jr., president, Madison Homes, Inc. and president, HomeAid Northern Virginia. “An updated, welcoming, clean home provides the foundation that the homeless need to plan for their futures. It’s amazing how committed the builder captains and trade partners involved in this project are to helping serve the homeless in our community.”
“We couldn’t have imagined the transformation made possible by this partnership,” said Russell K. Snyder, president of Volunteers of America Chesapeake. “Our staff works hard to help inspire self-reliance, dignity and hope in all our clients and the renovated apartments are a blessing to help them along this journey.”
“Winchester Homes is very pleased to contribute to a project that will make a difference in the lives of citizens in Loudoun County,” said John Monacci, executive vice president, Winchester Homes. “The great work that is accomplished at the shelter every day is inspirational, and it is gratifying to play a role in advancing their efforts.”
