The Family House in Chesapeake
The Family House in Chesapeake is one of the shelters that AVW supports through the Adopt-a-Student program. Built in 1901, it needs frequent repairs. AVW stepped up on December 3, 2011, sanding and repainting decks, replacing railings and repairing and securing the fire escape and safety rails. We also raked and cleaned the yard, removing overgrown and dead trees, and replaced a leaky ridge vent on the garage that stores donated furniture for families working towards moving into their own homes.
