President’s Message for 2018

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 a number of long range teams provided assistance to many families in our own back yard whose homes were damaged in late 2016 by Hurricane Matthew.

Since our inception in 2008, we have completed over 730 projects at little or no cost to the homeowners. In 2017 alone we set a new annual completion record, having completed  127 projects and worked on 2 full home rehabs in a single year.

We are an all-volunteer organization supported by church-based outreach groups, youth & adult groups, military, businesses and individuals.  We are  registered in Virginia as a 501(c)3 organization.  We have no paid employees.  Our funding comes mainly from donations.  We are very proud to report that we exceed all non-profit benchmarks by directing at least 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-both monetary or materials and services.

Here, on our website, you will find answers to many questions:  How do I volunteer my time and talent? How can I make a donation? What other ways may I support the program? What kinds of projects has FWC undertaken?  For more information, you are invited to attend our Board meetings which are open to the public  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.  The meetings run just 1 hour or less.  We have 2 phone numbers for information and referrals:

757-266-9994 for Virginia Beach and 757-266-9590 for Chesapeake.

Homeowners seeking assistance should use these phone numbers to contact our intake coordinator.  This is the only way to be considered for our services.   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!
