On Saturday, August 26, the Steelman family were handed the keys to their first home during the Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley dedication ceremony. Whitney Steelman, homeowner and mother of five, had waited for this day for almost two years. The beautiful blue two-story, five-bedroom home in the Belmont-Fallon community located in Southeast Roanoke was funded by “The Virginia House” grant and brought to life by Habitat for Humanity of the Roanoke Valley and the many volunteers who helped construct the home.
In commemoration of Virginia Intern Day, The Virginia Talent + Opportunity Partnership (VTOP) has recognized Virginia Housing as a recipient of the 2023 Top Virginia Employers for Interns Award. This annual award recognizes 100 employers throughout the Commonwealth who provide high-quality internships to students.
On a sunny February day in Powhatan, VA, Nikki and Aiden Chrimes watched emotionally as the two pieces of their modular home were craned onto their foundation. The roof was lifted to the structure soon after and volunteer landscaping crews from Habitat for Humanity began digging holes for magnolia trees donated by Hudgins Landscaping.
I remember when I was a loan officer, there were times I didn't have any loan options for families who needed special financing. Virginia Housing has been a wonderful resource in helping to provide options to make the dream of homeownership a reality for so many Virginians.”
