Operation Renewed Hope Foundation Celebrates First Home Purchase
On Friday, June 14, Operation Renewed Hope Foundation conducted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 6400 May Blvd., Alexandria, VA to celebrate its first home purchase. In April 2019, the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) awarded Operation Renewed Hope Foundation $582,274 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for the acquisition and necessary rehabilitation of two homes to serve veteran families at or below 50 percent of the area median income. These two homes will now provide affordable long-term housing to veterans and their families who are homeless or are at-risk of homelessness.
Operation Renewed Hope Foundation’s continued efforts to serve our veterans, many of whom are at risk of becoming homeless, are aligned with one of the main goals of the FCRHA - to prioritize housing assistance for those that are most vulnerable in our community, especially those who have dedicated their lives in service to our nation.
