Struggling Veterans find new home in Alexandria
Operation Renewed Hope Foundation opened a new home in Alexandria for Northern Virginia veterans struggling with homelessness on March 9, according to a news release.
The house was renovated by HomeAid Northern Virginia from a three bedroom, one-and-a-half bath property to a four-bedroom, three full bath and can accommodate up to four veterans or a family. The project also received support from Fairfax County Housing and Community Development, according to the release.
“Our goal is to get veterans into housing as quickly as possible so that they can establish themselves, get back on their feet and re-gain stability,” Operation Renewed Hope Foundation’s President and CEO Deborah Snyder said in the release.
The renovation cost an estimated $150,000, and received donated material and labor from HANV, which helps foster collaboration between nonprofit service providers and local home-builders to build or renovate homeless shelters, according to the release.
