HomeAid Northern Virginia (HANV), based in Chantilly, has named Kristyn Burr as its new executive director. HANV builds and renovates homeless shelters and housing facilities via the donated expertise, labor and resources of local homebuilders – enabling nonprofit organizations serving vulnerable communities to invest more of their budgets in supportive programs and services rather than building expenses.
Burr re-joins HANV in this leadership position after serving as its program and operations manager for the last two years. In that position she oversaw 18 construction and renovation projects on homeless shelters and supportive housing properties, led an assortment of community outreach and engagement initiatives, and assisted with the launch of HANV’s “Helping Hands” program to provide household items and food for pantries in the homes for families moving out of homelessness and into a new life for themselves in the homes that HANV renovates.
Burr brings more than 15 years of marketing, development, business and financial management to the executive director position. Before joining HANV she served as director of community development/director of finance and administration for the Nebraska chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, as a marketing and business planning consultant for nonprofits, and as a financial counselor with the U.S. Air Force.
