Shelter House was named Non-Profit of the Year by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce (Northern Virginia Chamber), The Voice of Business in Northern Virginia™. The award was presented at the Northern Virginia Chamber’s Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Awards at the organization’s Annual Chairman’s Luncheon in the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner.
Presented across seven categories, the awards honor extraordinary business leadership and above-and-beyond corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Shelter House has committed themselves to provide leadership in the community to improve and expand the DC region’s capacity to prevent and respond to domestic violence and homelessness. Through this commitment, Shelter House continues to focus on its mission: to prevent and end homelessness and domestic violence by engaging the community, building effective relationships, providing crisis intervention, safe housing, and supportive services.
“Thirty-six years after its creation, Shelter House is at an exciting and expansive stage of development,” said Shelter House CEO and Executive Director, Joe Meyer. “Our plan as an organization maximizes a strengths-based approach as a nexus for innovation and the leadership within our enterprise. We are dedicated to putting our ideas into action to solve human service challenges of today and tomorrow.”
“We’re proud to honor Shelter House, a perfect example of the strong commitment to community common throughout Northern Virginia,” said Northern Virginia Chamber President & CEO Jim Corcoran. “Through their leadership and efforts, they make meaningful contributions to the well-being of our community.”
