As a team of professionals living and working in northern Virginia, it is the ultimate goal and responsibility of Van Metre Homes to be not just a builder of luxury homes, but an active participant in the community at large.
Helping End Homelessness in Northern VA, One Shelter at a Time
Van Metre Homes is incredibly proud to support the efforts of area nonprofit, HomeAid Northern Virginia — with our very own Executive Vice President Brian Davidson at the helm, who serves as Executive Committee President on the 2015 HomeAid Board of Directors. HomeAid Northern Virginia, a chapter of the larger HomeAid America, has committed itself to helping local organizations provide quality housing for the too-many Virginia families and individuals who struggle to get by without a permanent place to call home.
“With the invaluable support of homebuilders like Van Metre and other corporate sponsors too many to name, HomeAid America has completed 96 projects that have benefited more than 72,000 homeless individuals since its inception in 2001,” said Brian Davidson, Executive Vice President of Van Metre Homes and HomeAid Northern Virginia Board of Directors President. “It’s such a worthy cause: Rewarding, and fun to boot, especially come Gala season.”
Did someone say Gala?
Yes! This November, HomeAid Northern Virginia is hosting the 14th Annual Gala & Auction: There’s No Place Like Home on Saturday, November 7 at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles. Take a trip down the famed yellow brick road for a night of live and silent auctions; raffle prizes; great food, and so much more — all to help HomeAid Northern Virginia (and Van Metre Homes!) provide homes for those without them.
About HomeAid Northern Virginia
In the great Commonwealth of Virginia, approximately 40,000 people are homeless — nearly 5000 in northern Virginia alone. These people, our neighbors and fellow Americans live in their cars, on the streets, in wooded areas, abandoned buildings, or anywhere they might find brief respite from the elements. And to make matters even more disheartening, a full quarter of the homeless population is made up by children. Someone has to say no more; someone has to do something about this.
That someone is HomeAid Northern Virginia. The nonprofit organization has, for over a decade, taken on projects to renovate existing, and construct new shelter facilities that house thousands of homeless families and individuals each year. With the support of homebuilders and trade partners, HomeAid Northern Virginia is able to provide significant cost savings to the shelters so they might better serve the needs of Virginians in crisis.
