CFH, a 44-year-old Northern Virginia housing nonprofit, has moved to 7702 Donegan Drive at the Sudley North Business Center in Manassas from their long-time office in Dumfries. Their continued expansion of services and the opportunity to be closer to the East End Mobile Home Park property they rescued and manage spurred the move.
“We believe that being closer to so many we serve, either at East End or through our food distribution program, will make us even more efficient,” said CFH Executive Director George Davies. “And that directly translates into more time to do more and thus keep expanding our impact.”
CFH operates solely through grants and donations and is currently planning for its only annual fundraising event, the 6th Annual CFH 5K Run-Walk for Affordable Housing. The 5k run/walk and the group’s first cornhole toss competition will be held at Occoquan Regional Park at 9:00 a.m. on Oct. 8, with a virtual 5k open Oct. 8 to 22. All are welcome, including wheelchair participants, and the cornhole toss is open to anyone who wishes to participate whether they take part in the 5k or not. More information and a link to registration can be found on the CFH web site cfhva.org.
This annual event is held in honor of the late Father Gerard Creedon, who inspired a group of his parishioners to establish CFH in 1979 to serve a variety of community housing needs, and guided CFH to seek out ways to assist the community until his passing in 2017. In 2018 CFH purchased the East End Mobile Home Park in Manassas to save it from impending condemnation, adding improvements and amenities and bringing programs for children and families. CFH conducts a variety of programs related to food assistance, first-time homeownership, food distribution, affordable rentals, security deposit help and emergency assistance for at-risk seniors.
