Since 1990, Habitat NOVA has built or renovated homes in Arlington County, Fairfax County, and the Cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, and Falls Church.

Habitat NOVA homes are modestly-sized but large enough to suit a family’s needs. Managing construction and maintenance costs begins with a smart, efficient design that incorporates the availability of resources, climate, and culture.

Construction is supported exclusively by gift-in-kind contributions, volunteer labor, and generous donor support from foundations, corporate sponsors, individuals, and faith-based organizations. This support enables Habitat NOVA to build and renovate properties within our region and creates affordable homeownership opportunities for low to moderate-income families.
