Christ House awarded project of the year

Diocesan Catholic Charities Christ House in Alexandria was awarded the non-profit service provider project of the year by HomeAid Northern Virginia at its annual gala Nov. 9. The award recognizes the completion of renovations at the transitional housing facility through its partnership with HANV, a non-profit that builds and renovates local housing and shelters.

“The extensive renovations to Christ House, provided by HomeAid and its partner contractors, strengthened Catholic Charities’ ability to best serve the local community for years to come,” said Art Bennett, Catholic Charities president and CEO. “These kinds of partnerships demonstrate what true service is all about. Key historic elements of the building were preserved throughout the renovation process. More importantly, our evening meal, which feeds homeless men, women and families 365 days a year, was continued every single day without missing a beat.”

Catholic Charities completed the $83,000 renovation and upgrade project earlier this year for the building that houses14 homeless men.
