Beloved former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony in early December to mark the opening of a new home constructed by HomeAid Northern Virginia and Stanley Martin Homes.

Built on the Youth For Tomorrow campus in Bristow, Va., as a residence for girls who are survivors of sex trafficking, the home was finished using the donated labor, expertise and resources of Northern Virginia Building Industry Association (NVBIA) members and their partners. More than 100 suppliers, manufacturers and subcontractors contributed to the project.

Coach Gibbs founded Youth For Tomorrow 29 years ago to provide programs and services for at-risk youth. The campus now hosts five different residential programs, including a nationally recognized program for young victims of sex trafficking.

ribbonNVBIA launched HomeAid Northern Virginia 14 years ago, and since that time, members and their trade partners have donated more than $7.6 million to its projects – saving shelters more than 55% on construction costs. These savings are directed into programs and services to help homeless clients become more independent and self-sustaining.

Stanley Martin Homes has played an integral role with HomeAid Northern Virginia, serving as builder captain on a number of projects and providing leadership on the charity’s board of directors.
