People Behind the Purpose

Each week, the CoC will introduce one of our wonderful, intelligent, and dynamic partners working with the CoC to make sure that every person in our community has a place to call home.

Lisa Crittenden is the Chief Executive Officer of Loisann's Hope House in Fredericksburg, VA . In this role, she leads efforts to provide homeless children and families with shelter and quickly moves them into their own homes. With over 25 years of experience in managing high-profile initiatives and programs, her range of expertise incorporates fields of work in the federal government, national and international not for profit, and local grassroots organizations. Passion drives her to continuously be engaged in activities that help change lives and impact the community. Lisa is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, the Virginia Black History Month Association, who is striving to place children in higher education, and a member of Colonial Baptist Church.

Lisa has been a member of the CoC Board since 2015 and served two years as Vice-Chair. When asked why she has chosen to work on the community's homelessness effort she says "There are times when any of us can face homelessness based on circumstances. It impacts our community through a ripple effect such as availability of healthcare resources, crime and safety, the workforce, and the use of tax dollars. I have personally faced challenges due to the loss of employment, ending of a marriage and raising children as a single parent. I just love seeing the parents leave the shelter with smiles and gratitude that they received the support to make housing happen. It really means a lot to them for anyone to say “you got this” and truly mean it!"

At Loisann’s Hope House in Fredericksburg Virginia, homelessness isn’t just a number. It’s the faces of our neighbors and community members. Your child’s teacher or daycare worker, the friendly cashier at the grocery store, or the person who delivers your food — anyone can face homelessness, and it is very oftentimes a silent threat, made even more urgent by the sub-zero inclement weather that much of the United States is currently experiencing. But while it may be freezing, the families staying at Loisann’s Hope House are surrounded by warmth, security and a sense of hope for the future. Thank you to everyone that helps Loisann’s Hope House provide a loving home for families in our region facing homelessness, not only during the coldest winter months, but all year long.
