150 Projects Through the Years – Christian Relief Services (2011)

In 2011 Stanley Martin Homes worked as Builder Captain on our project to renovate a home used as a transitional shelter by Christian Relief Services which housed four adult males. This project, valued at $110,000, included the renovation of five bedrooms; updates to the bathrooms; repairs to the dining room ceiling; and a remodeled kitchen that included energy efficient products to help reduce monthly energy costs.

Today, we are celebrating the completion of our 150th project. Help us reach the next 150 by donating to our HomeAid150Campaign today: homeaidnova.org/150campaign/

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Please be careful and continue to look after each other during this serious pandemic. The President of the United States has declared a state of emergency. Here in Virginia, the Governor made that determination yesterday in response to the spread of COVID-19. You can read from the Governor’s emergency declaration below:

“Our top priority is to make sure Virginians stay safe and healthy, and that our response to this situation leaves no one behind,” said Governor Northam. “From our health department, to our schools, to our hospitals, to our transit systems, Virginia’s agencies and institutions have been thoroughly planning for every scenario. This emergency declaration will ensure we can continue to prepare for and appropriately respond to Virginians’ needs during this time.”

Governor Northam also announced additional steps to ensure the health and safety of all Virginians, including:

Ban on State Employee Travel and Implementation of Telework Policies

Virginia has over 100,000 state employees stationed throughout the Commonwealth. Governor Northam has halted all official travel outside of Virginia by state employees, with increased flexibility for inter-state commuters and essential personnel. Specific guidance will be released to agency heads and state employees, and Virginia will revisit these guidelines after 30 days.

Governor Northam has also directed his Secretary of Administration to implement a phased transition to teleworking for state employees. The Department of Human Resources Management will work with the Virginia Department of Health’s Equity Workgroup to prioritize support for impacted state employees that may be unable to perform their duties from home, including janitorial, food, and grounds staff.

The Department of Human Resources Management has worked to ensure all agencies have updated emergency operations and leave policies. State employees, including part-time employees, can access paid Public Health Emergency Leave in the event of exposure to COVID-19 or high-risk travel.

Public Gatherings and Large Events

In accordance with advice from state public health experts, the Commonwealth of Virginia will cancel all specially-scheduled state conferences and large events for a minimum of 30 days.

Governor Northam is directing state agencies, through the Department of Human Resource Management, to limit in-person meetings and non-essential, work-related gatherings.

Governor Northam is also urging localities and non-profits to limit large public events, effective immediately. Localities should make these decisions in coordination with their local health departments and the Virginia Department of Health. Highly populated localities and those with close proximity to positive cases are strongly encouraged to announce updated event guidance by Friday, March 13, at 5:00 PM, in advance of the weekend.

Long-Term Economic Planning

Governor Northam is also assessing the potential long-term economic impacts of COVID-19. While containing the spread of the public health threat remains a top priority, Governor Northam is working with state and local partners to ensure Virginia are prepared for any continued economic disruption.

Virginia’s Secretary of Commerce and Trade will coordinate regularly with representatives from the Virginia Employment Commission, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, the Department of Housing and Community Development, the Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity, the Department of Labor and Industry, the Virginia Tourism Corporation, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and other relevant stakeholders.

Throughout his administration, Governor Northam has worked closely with state legislators to protect Virginia’s strong economy and prepare for unexpected economic shocks. The General Assembly will vote today on a budget that boosts Virginia’s reserve funds more than at any other time in the Commonwealth’s history, an essential mechanism to ensure continued state services regardless of economic uncertainty.

Ongoing State Response Efforts

The Commonwealth of Virginia is continuing to execute a multi-agency response plan across all levels of government. Efforts include the following:

Nursing Homes

The Virginia Department of Health has expanded its testing criteria to ensure that anyone who has symptoms and is in a nursing home is top priority and gets immediate testing.
Nursing homes and senior care facilities have updated their policies to provide additional visitor screening and increased monitoring of patients.

Vulnerable Virginians

Virginia’s social services agencies are preparing options to ensure the most vulnerable populations have continued access to critical services, including the potential for in-home care and food supports.
In the event of extended school closures, the Virginia Department of Social Services is working with local partners, such as food pantries, to ensure no one goes hungry.

Addressing Barriers to Care

Virginia is working with insurers to waive co-pays and diagnostic testing related to COVID-19.
Governor Northam continues to encourage private businesses to explore telework and paid time off options, including those with hourly workers.

Transportation

Across the Commonwealth’s transportation network, which includes airports, Metro, buses, and rail, Virginia is adjusting cleaning schedules according to CDC protocol.
Virginia is also working with transportation partners to help reduce the potential spread of disease.

This situation is being closely monitored by the Virginia Department of Health, which is leading the COVID-19 response. There are a number of practical steps that we can all take to help lower the risk of germ spread.

The Virginia Department of Health encourages the following:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer only if soap and water are not available.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Avoid contact with sick people.
Avoid non-essential travel.
Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol if soap and water are unavailable.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

“Don’t allow anybody to make you feel that you are nobody. Always feel that you count. Always feel that you have worth, and always feel that your life has ultimate significance.... Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Among the greatest joys of childhood is waking up on Christmas morning to find that Santa has left the exact present you were hoping for.

But for the children in our domestic violence housing program in Virginia, it’s a wish that may not come true without your help.

Yet again there is trash everywhere at your rental property on Alcott Street. Trash bags that have been ripped open most likely by animals spewing trash all over their driveway. The tenants there are either blind or Joe care that there’s trash all over their driveway. I do not want rats in my house it is your responsibility as the owner of the home to maintain this property they only even cut the grass about once every other month. So either fix it by the end of today or my next call will be to Fairfax county code violations this is unnecessary that I have to keep doing this
