Your end of the year gift today will help more local families
get HOME for the holidays.

“Home for the holidays” for most of us, is a magical time of year when we look forward to gathering together with our families and friends to celebrate the season in the warmth and comfort of our homes.

Sadly during the holidays, many lower-income local families experience heightened stress as they struggle to provide a safe and healthy home for their family. That’s because decent and affordable housing is out of reach for so many of Northern Virginia’s hardest working families.

At Habitat NOVA, our work is all about the local families we serve!

A perfect example of Habitat NOVA’s tireless efforts to help families build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable home- ownership is the story of Yishak and Sosena’s family.

For Yishak, Sosena, and their two children, Amanuel and Eldana, their one bedroom, one bathroom apartment was a tight squeeze.

“We had been living in a small apartment with our children for years, and even though we both worked full- time, we spent almost every penny we made on rent and bills. We could never seem to get ahead.”

That all changed when they were accepted into the Habitat NOVA program. This year, Yishak, Sosena, and their two children were proud to move into their very own HOME after working side-by-side with Habitat NOVA volunteers to make their dream of homeownership a reality.

This year Yishak, Sosena, and their two children have a gift they will never forget – a place to call HOME!

What does this home mean to them?

“It’s an investment for our children and gives us pride and hope for a new future for our family.”  – Yishak & Sosena

Your impact is making a difference! Here’s Habitat NOVA by the numbers…


Your support of Habitat NOVA creates successful homeownership opportunities by giving a hand up – not a handout – to local hardworking, low-income families. Every Habitat NOVA homeowner invests hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” to help build their home alongside volunteers. We rely on your donations to purchase construction materials so that each future family can buy their home with an affordable mortgage.


This holiday season, we are excited to share that, thanks to the generosity of Priority Toyota Springfield your gift can do even more to build affordable housing in our community.

When you make a gift to Habitat for Humanity NOVA now through December 31st your thoughtful donation will be matched, up to a total of $30,000.

Your $25 becomes $50. Or your $100 becomes $200. Then, as we all come together, $30,000 becomes $60,000!

Please consider making a gift to Habitat NOVA, as we all work together toward our vision of a world where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live.
