DryHome Roofing and Siding has been providing free roofs to those in need for the past 20 years. Each year, they accept nominations from the community to identify an individual, family, or nonprofit that needs a new roof. This year, they selected Pathway Homes, a nonprofit that provides non-time-limited housing and supportive services to adults with serious mental illness and other co-occurring disabilities in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. They have provided housing for nearly 1,600 people with mental illnesses in 2022 alone.
Pathway received the new roof for one of its homes near Mount Vernon. DryHome CEO, Steve Gotschi, told Loudoun Now, “Pathway Homes is an outstanding nonprofit that provides homes and mental health services to many people in our community. We are happy to help Pathways and their clients by providing a new roof on one of its homes. We are excited that Pathways can use the savings to support their residents in other ways.”
Pathway could not have been more excited and gracious to have received the new roof. They met DryHome with the same type of gratuity and CEO, Sylisa Lambert-Woodard told Loudoun Now, “We are grateful for DryHome’s generosity and leadership. For our clients who have struggled to keep a roof over their heads, the meaning of having a new one is not lost on them or us. DryHome’s donation frees up resources so we are able to invest more into services that can help those we serve to continue rebuilding their lives.”
These acts of service are something that DryHome is not a stranger to. Since the company’s inception, they have given away 21 roofs at a value of upwards of $200,000.
