As the recipient of the Dulles Chamber of Commerce Corporate Social Responsibility Award, Sekas Homes is making a real difference in our community. Sekas, led by owner John Sekas, is a member of the Fairfax Falls Church Community Partnership to Prevent and End Homelessness Governing Board. As part of the effort to "Build a Village" to help end homelessness, Sekas at the launch of the "Build A Village" challenged his colleagues on the Governing Board and his business partners and colleagues to raise $100,000 that would provide non-profit service providers with the resources to continue to serve the over 1,200 homeless in Fairfax-Falls Church. Northern Virginia chambers of commerce, businesses, Fairfax County Government agencies, civic, faith and nonprofit organizations, and individuals, accepted his challenge and exceeded the goal raising over $101,450. Sekas personally raised over 40% of the funds.

That kind of "get it done" leadership makes a difference in Fairfax! Thanks to John and Sekas homes for all their work in our community.
