Since our start in 1981, we’ve learned something critical to our mission: if you give something time, very special things can happen.
We went from Rene Llewellyn wanting to transform some shacks on Windy Hill Road to building 396 affordable housing units in Loudoun County and its surrounding areas in 35 years. Back in 1981, no one at Rene’s house would have ever guessed that Windy Hill Foundation would turn into such a large, positive, and motivating force in our community. We offer programs for children and seniors throughout our properties, providing assistance to our neighbors when they need it.
We quickly realized that we weren’t doing this to provide houses; houses are merely buildings made of wood and metal. No, we’re supplying homes – and homes are made up of people and their incredibly poignant stories.
Who We Are
If you take a look at the members of the Windy Hill Foundation Board, you’ll see that we’re just like you. We’ve got moms, dads, grandparents, veterans, business owners, philanthropists, horse lovers, lawyers, and master gardeners – just to name a few. We may not all have time to serve Windy Hill every single day, but we use our skills and our backgrounds to ensure that it’s a well-oiled machine.
Our residents depend on us for housing, childcare, and even movie nights. We vow that as long as Windy Hill exists, we will do everything we can to make sure Bingo starts on time and rents stay affordable.
How We Work
We are a non-profit organization supported by donations, tenant rent, and government subsidies. Every year, we publish a copy of our Annual Report so that you can see where the money goes. Our goal is simple: we do as much as we can with as little as we can. The more donations we receive, the more we invest in our local communities and our neighbors. And thanks to our wonderful volunteers, we do a lot with every single donation dollar.
