FCRHA, Wesley Housing Celebrate Preservation of Wexford Manor
On Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2017, Robert Schwaninger, Chairman for the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) was one of several guest speakers at a dedication for Wexford Manor hosted by Wesley Housing.
Other speakers at the event included Delegate Marcus Simon, Virginia House of Delegates; Susan Dewey, Virginia Housing Development Authority; Phil Davis, Office of Congressman Don Beyer; Shelley Murphy, Wesley Housing; Ed Delany, Capital One; and Kimmel Cameron, Hudson Housing Capital, LLC.
Located just off of Route 29 approximately two miles inside the Capital Beltway (I-495) in Falls Church (Providence District), Wexford Manor consist of two buildings with 74 units of affordable housing, serving those with special needs and independent seniors.
The FCRHA provided $2.9 million in Housing Blueprint Funds to Wesley Housing, a local non-profit organization, to help renovate the community. Updates were made to the interior and exterior parts of the buildings, to include the conversion of eight units to full accessibility, and an expanded Community Resource Center for resident services and support. Financing was provided to Wesley Housing in the form of a deferred loan from the FCRHA.
For at least the next 30 years, the community will be preserved as affordable housing and will ensure the County has an enduring affordable resource for those of modest means for years to come.
