President’s Message for 2017

johnWelcome to the Faith Works Coalition website — we’re happy that you want to learn more about who we are!

Our mission is to eliminate poor living conditions by providing health and safety repairs for elderly, disabled and low income homeowners in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach. We also have a Disaster Relief Committee and most recently provided a traveling team to repair and rebuild homes in South Carolina which were severely flooded in late 2015, as well as numerous long-term teams working here in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake to remediate storm damage from Hurricane Matthew.

Since our inception in 2008, we have completed over 600 projects at little or no cost to the homeowners. In 2016 alone we have completed  110 projects and worked on 2 full home rehabs.

We are supported by volunteers — church-based outreach groups, youth & adult groups, military, and individuals — and our funding comes mainly from donations. We’re registered in Virginia as a 501(c)3 organization, and we have no paid employees. We are very proud to report that we exceed all non-profit benchmarks by directing 97% of every dollar donated to us for supplies and building materials to complete our projects.  Our two most urgent needs are more volunteers willing to work with our Board of Directors and donations-monetary or materials and services.

Here, on our website, you will find answers to many questions: How do I ask for help for myself or my family? How do I volunteer my time and talent? How can I make a donation? What other ways may I support the program? For more information, you are invited to attend our Board meetings which are open and  held the second Thursday of the month at 5:30 PM in the social hall of St. Nicholas Catholic Church at 712 Little Neck Road, Virginia Beach.  We have 2 phone numbers for information and referrals:  757-266-9994 for Virginia Beach and 757-266-9590 for Chesapeake.   Our mailing address is 4876-118 Princess Anne Road, PMB 221 Virginia Beach, VA 23462

I  hope that you enjoy your visit to our website.  You can also follow us on Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/FaithWorksCoalition/

We look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome Aboard!
