PWAR Gives Back

PWAR Members Give Back

PWAR is dedicated to volunteering and serving our community. We actively work to address local needs and enhance housing opportunities. Below is a list of organizations we support in these efforts.

 

The Boys & Girls Clubs were established over 100 years ago, the Boys & Girls Club has more than 4,100 chapters nationwide and serves as a ‘second home’ to nearly four million kids each year. The Boys & Girls Club is a ‘home away from home’ for many kids, helping to stabilize lives and foster opportunity by offering positive supervision after school.

The mission of the Boys and Girls Club of Manassas is “To help boys and girls of all backgrounds, especially those who need us most, build confidence, develop character and acquire the skills needed to become productive, civic-minded, responsible adults.”

Northern Virginia Family Service provides the essential building blocks for financial, emotional and physical well-being. NVFS provides emergency homeless shelter in Manassas as well as financial assistance with rent and utilities to prevent homelessness from occurring in Fairfax and Prince William counties. Every year, they empower more than 35,000 individuals to achieve self-sufficiency. With these essential resources, our community is better equipped for future success and engagement among all of our neighbors.

The mission of Northern Virginia Family Services is to empower individuals and families to improve their quality of life, and to promote community cooperation and support in responding to family needs.

Project Mend-A-House serves individuals that live with disabilities, are elderly, or are veterans that are low-income, by repairing or modifying their homes to ensure that they are able to continue living safely and healthily in their own homes. The repairs and modifications can include but are not limited to: HVAC, Plumbing, Drywall, Wheelchair Ramps, Bathroom Modifications, and more. These modifications not only allow for a healthy and safe environment but provide the clients the freedom to move around their own homes and the mental security that they do not have to worry about any financial barriers that may impact their daily life.

The Prince William County Preschool program is a state and federally funded program that provides comprehensive early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families.

Recognizing the importance of supporting the local community, PWAR organizes a coat drive specifically for the Head Start program. They reached out to their members, as well as the wider community, to donate new coats suitable for children aged 4-6 years old, and larger sizes suitable for student’s siblings. This coat drive serves as a shining example of how a small act of kindness can have a significant impact. It not only provides warmth to those in need but also fosters a sense of unity and compassion within the community.

The StreeLight was established to alleviate suffering among the poor and homeless in Prince William County. They are committed to helping each individual who comes through our door to rise above their present challenges to achieve independence and personal success, by offering services such as: permanent supportive housing, supportive shelter, homeless outreach, hypothermia shelter, a food pantry, and a lavish banquet dinner accompanied by an inspirational message every Wednesday.

The StreetLight’s mission is to build strong community by improving the quality of life for impoverished men, women and children, including the chronically homeless.
