2018 Award is Presented to Staged Interior
HomeAid’s trade partners are those in the home building industry – suppliers, manufacturers, electricians, plumbers, etc. – who play meaningful roles in shelter construction projects by donating materials, time, labor and expertise. A family-run, Chantilly-based company led by Young and Trish Kim, Staged Interior has enhanced HomeAid projects by providing furniture, accessories and labor in order to transform HANV renovation and new-build projects into warm, welcoming, family-friendly
The Trade Partner of the Year award recognizes Staged Interior’s customized, personalized focus to ensure that each completed project meets the needs of incoming residents. Staged Interior has also donated more than $200,000 of furniture and accessories to HANV projects including: furnishings for a group home HANV built for Youth for Tomorrow for teen girls who are pregnant, homeless, runaways or
survivors of sex trafficking; furnishings for the 7 HANV-renovated affordable housing units operated by Community Lodgings in Alexandria; and furnishings for the 12 supportive housing units in Woodbridge that HANV upgraded for Catholic Charities for families coming out of regional emergency shelters and domestic violence programs.
