Our Community Strong program provides improvements to a variety of common spaces used by thousands of Alexandria residents. From community parks and gardens to senior centers, homeless shelters and low-income daycare facilities, we partner with other organizations to upgrade or renovate these areas. Activities include building greenhouses and vegetable gardens, installing benches and tables, creating walkways, planting greenery, installing play areas, and much more.
Because of the work we’ve completed, children now have safe areas to play, neighbors have gardens to grow their own food, seniors have social connection spaces, and safe facilities to attend, and whole neighborhoods have been revitalized.
Application: Call or apply online. Concerning eligibility, folks who are eligible are low income homeowners who cannot maintain their homes (typically elderly, persons with disabilities, veterans, and families with children), as are nonprofit facilities, schools, and public spaces that serve low-income residents. To be considered for home assistance, candidates must complete and submit an application form and provide documentation of total household income, such as tax forms or pay stubs. Some of our clients are referred through congregations, schools, community agencies and service groups, or by self-referral.
