Catholic News Service, November 11, 2019
In May 2019, HomeAid Northern Virginia, K. Hovnanian Homes, and 28 Trade Partners completed a renovation of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Arlington's Christ House in Old Town Alexandria. This well-used building is home to four critical programs: transitional housing for 14 men, a food pantry, emergency rental assistance, and a soup kitchen that has proudly served dinner every night since 1974. Learn how HomeAid worked around the hundreds of clients, volunteers, and staff who come in and out of Christ House each day to totally transform the space so that it can be welcoming and uplifting community space and home for many years to come.
