WHAT WE OFFER

Services of CFH

CFH empowers individuals and families to successfully create a sustainable home in which they can achieve their goals and allow their children to build their dreams and reach their potential.

Senior Rental Assistance

The Virginia Ely Senior Rental Assistance Program creates opportunities for the 62+ population to live independently. This program serves seniors who qualify to live in the Fairfax County senior facilities except their incomes are insufficient to allow them to sustain an apartment.

Security Deposit Assistance

Creating a safe place to call home requires a lot of different pieces coming together. Sometimes it’s as simple as having help with the security deposit. Applicants to the Edie Streett Security Deposit Program can reside anywhere within the 21 counties of the CFH service area. 

Affordable Rental Homes

Having a safe place to call home is important. Affordable rental homes are important to limited income households. Being able to sustain a home allows people to utilize their strengths to address their weaknesses.

East End Mobile Home Park

For over a year, CFH worked with the City of Manassas to purchase the East End Mobile Home Park to save 59 families from eviction. The Manassas City Council voted unanimously Oct. 16, 2018 to subordinate its contract with the current owner of the property, making way for CFH to purchase the mobile home park for $1.4 million.

CFH looks at this as a total project, repairing the sewer and water, and bringing the city in to take the water system from a private to a public system, where every resident will be a customer of the city. Other improvements will include upgraded roads, manholes and fire hydrants inside the park, tree pruning and much more.

The 5K Run-Walk for Affordable Housing

CFH has announced its second year for the 5K for Affordable Housing at Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville.

The run/walk fundraiser will help CFH continue providing sustainable affordable housing and critical life skills training to help set individuals and families on a path of self-sufficiency.
