About Us

Opening Doors to Housing


Central Virginia Housing is a 501c(3) non-profit organization. We work to improve the regional quality of life by providing affordable housing opportunities to families through coalition, education, and counseling. Our organization began with an all-volunteer staff and one program. Today, Central Virginia Housing is fully staffed and is focused on providing affordable housing in the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg, Caroline, and King George.

The Need


At Central Virginia Housing, our goal is to connect our community with information and resources to best serve their housing needs. Nobody plans on losing their housing and facing homelessness. However, the average American is only one paycheck away from becoming homeless. For families living paycheck to paycheck, one unexpected expense can jeopardize housing.

Our Approach


We work with families and individuals to try and prevent them from losing their housing when crisis strikes. We equip those who walk through our doors with the information and tools necessary for them to be successful renters or homeowners through education, counseling, community collaboration and case management.

We Equip for Success Through Counseling and Education

If you’re not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.

We’re first time homebuyers and we saw that Central Virginia Housing offered a first time home buyers class. Because of how involved and informational or Central Virginia Housing counselor was, we were able to clear up our credit and boost our credit rating to reduce our interest rate.
