Affordable Homes and Services for the Community (HOMES) Program
Para más información en Español, por favor presione aquí.

Through our HOMES program, we help low-income families and individuals by providing affordable, stable housing and individualized case management that will help them address structural barriers to long-term housing like poor credit histories, itinerant rental histories, little or no savings, and low incomes.

Case Management

Our GSH case management staff work individually with our residents to create goals and action plans to improve many facets of self-sufficiency, including increasing income, pursuing education, and budgeting and financial management. The case managers also refer GSH residents to other organizations that specialize in certain types of assistance or mentoring. The goal is for residents to become self-sufficient and be able to pay their rent consistently and on time.

GSH’s apartment rentals are located along Richmond Highway in Alexandria, VA (Fairfax County). The following are a few of our rental locations:

The rental units are affordable and intended for people within 40-50% of the Area Median Income (AMI). Resident income and the ability to pay (debt to income ratio) are the primary qualifiers, as GSH does not want to rent burden its residents.
