Falls Church Housing Corporation (FCHC): Making a Bigger Impact Together

For the past 34 years, FCHC a Virginia Community Development Corporation, formerly the Falls Church Housing Corporation (FCHC), has been dedicated to improving the lives of people who suffer from a lack of affordable housing. Our commitment to low- and moderate-income seniors and disabled residents has helped define building community as serving regardless of means. In 2014, FCHC’s work accelerated, improving operations and the financial stability of our existing portfolio. Along with these accomplishments and growth insight, we realize we cannot do this work without the help of financial partners, like those we are recognizing with gratitude in this annual report. FCHC remains concerned that an unmet need for affordable housing still exists in the community we serve. Going forward, we will work hard with the partnerships we have developed, and strive to build new ones—making a bigger impact together! Please ask your friends and colleagues to join in with our vital work so they can be counted in making a difference.

Annual Report from the Executive Director

FCHC a Virginia Community Development Corporation (FCHC) began 2014 in a good and stable position. The proceeds from the earlier refinancing of the Winter Hill Apartments and the sale of the 350 S. Washington Street (CC South building) created a sustainable level of working capital we have used to optimize internal operations. It gives us the strength to be competitive buyers and developers as opportunities arise, thereby increasing the community’s supply of affordable housing. As we continue to build the groundwork necessary for future mission- driven accomplishments, FCHC’s financial contributions and overall financial position have remained steady. We sincerely thank our friends, partners, and members who contributed $1,405,826 in financial support in 2014. We were also extremely thankful to receive renewed and essential grant funding from the City of Falls Church through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and the Community Services Fund. In 2014, FCHC was able to increase the operating efficiency at both Winter Hill Apartments and Virginia Village, creating a growing cash flow position for future development activities. FCHC President Richard Burns wrote his letter for this annual report under the headline “Making a Bigger Impact Together.” That is such an apt description for the goals we can accomplish thanks to the relationships we have built. We are so grateful for the strong ties we have developed with elected officials from the City of Falls Church, stakeholders from the surrounding communities, our financial partners, and the residents of FCHC communities—together—making possible another successful year. Together, we can preserve and grow new affordable housing development opportunities that will have a bigger impact for those whose unmet needs we strive to address.
