Local Company’s Annual Charity Event Brings Joy and Security to a Sterling Mom
STERLING, Va.—In a heartwarming act of community support, DryHome Roofing and Siding, a Sterling-based company, has generously donated a new roof to Asma Messaoudi, a disabled single mother of four. This gift, part of DryHome’s 21st annual Free Roof for the Holidays program, is not only a gesture of goodwill but also a crucial aid in ensuring Messaoudi’s family retains their homeowners insurance.
Steve Gotschi, CEO of DryHome, shared his thoughts on the initiative: “Ms. Messaoudi’s determination in purchasing her home through Loudoun Habitat is inspiring. Our contribution is more than just a roof; it’s about providing her family with security and peace of mind, allowing her to focus on her health and family needs, especially given her disability and the additional home modifications it necessitates.”
Messaoudi’s story is one of resilience and perseverance. Since she arrived in the U.S. in 2006, she has worked diligently to secure a home through the affordable Homeownership Program with Loudoun Habitat for Humanity, achieving this dream in 2016. However, this year, her homeowners’ insurance company mandated a roof replacement by mid-December to maintain coverage, a financial challenge Loudoun Habitat helped alleviate by nominating her for DryHome’s program.
Loudoun Habitat for Humanity plays a vital role in our community, partnering with individuals and organizations to transform lives. The program not only offers homes at affordable rates to those earning 30% to 60% of the area’s median income but also provides essential education and volunteer opportunities, fostering long-term stability and community improvement.
For over three decades, DryHome Roofing and Siding has been a staple in Northern Virginia, committed to ensuring safe and quality roofing for families and organizations. Their Free Roof for the Holidays program, a tradition of giving back, has donated 22 roofs valued at over $200,000 since its inception, supporting individuals and nonprofits across the region with diverse needs.
This year’s gesture towards Messaoudi is a testament to the spirit of community and compassion that defines Loudoun County. As we celebrate this season of giving, stories like Asma Messaoudi’s remind us of the power of community support and the difference it can make in the lives of our neighbors.
