Mission Statement project:HOMES (formerly ElderHomes) is dedicated to improving the quality of housing and living conditions of people in need in Central Virginia by making critical home repairs and improvements and building high quality, affordable homes. Our mission is “Improving lives by improving homes.” We help low-income and elderly remain in their homes and comfortably age in place. We improve accessibility and safety in the homes of the disabled and we help revitalize communities by building attractive, energy efficient, affordable homes.   The Weatherization program improves comfort and safety, reduces energy costs and utilizes innovative energy conserving techniques.  The Rehabilitation programs improve home structure and functionality by conducting critical home repairs and improvements.   The Renew Crew volunteers tackle smaller home repair projects and build wheelchair ramps and other accessibility modifications.  The Revitalization program improves neighborhoods by preserving existing homes and building new ones and setting quality standards for affordable housing for a lifetime.   The Conservation initiative promotes improving energy efficiency and lowering cost, encourages environmental responsibility and generates financial self-support.
