FAIRFAX, VA — The Washington, D.C. affiliate of Brookfield Residential recently partnered with HomeAid Northern Virginia and Shelter House to renovate a Dale City townhome, used as transitional housing for homeless families and/or families trying to get back on their feet.
HomeAid Northern Virginia was created in 2001 by the Northern Virginia Building Industry, a consortium of local and national homebuilders in the area. The homebuilders leverage their relationships and resources to significantly offset the costs associated with renovating and rebuilding transitional homes. These facilities are maintained by organizations like Shelter House and used to provide safe and dependable shelters for families trying to gain their independence.
Brookfield Residential was proud to serve as Builder Captain on this most recent project. The renovation included installation of new plumbing throughout the home, replacing old vinyl flooring with hardwood in the kitchen/breakfast area, installing new carpet in the upper level of the home, rebuilding a dilapidated wall in the upstairs bathroom, replacing all interior doors, and installing a new kitchen range. Additionally, after the repairs were complete, significant cosmetic enhancements were made to include new drywall and a fresh coat of paint throughout the home.
“The home now feels secure, stable and full of possibility – like a home should,” says Brookfield Residential’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Gregg Hughes. “At Brookfield, we feel compelled to utilize our time, energy and resources to help others. The DC area has been good to us and this is our way of doing what we can to give back.”
