2021 CARE Awards Sponsor Spotlight

Thank you to all our 2021 CARE Awards sponsors! We are privileged that some have chosen to share why they’ve chosen to support NVFS and the impact they have achieved through this partnership.

To Dev Technology, supporting our community is more than just writing a check; supporting our community means direct involvement with the places we live and work. COVID-19 brought an increased need to communities, families, and individuals all over the world, as well as creating challenges for meeting those needs. Community is one of our six core values, and we embraced this need through donation drives, food drives, Back-to-School drives, our annual Holiday Giving Campaign, and virtual community support events for employees to participate in.

We also continued our philosophy of employee well-being and culture by creating new virtual and hybrid employee events to allow our team to continue to feel connected. From virtual coffee sessions to fitness challenges to our drive-through Spring Fest full of games and more, we have continued our company culture even through these unprecedented times. We have also established a formal commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and set up a robust DE&I program aimed at creating opportunities to celebrate our unique experiences and backgrounds. And we actively support women at all levels of their careers, in both technical and non-technical roles. We participated in AnitaB.org’s Top Companies for Women Technologists program as part of our greater DE&I commitment and were named the winner in the small workforce size category.

Our employee passion and commitment to each other have allowed us to come together to navigate change and shape a path forward while remaining employee-focused. We are proud to support Northern Virginia Family Service and their mission to empower individuals and families in the Northern Virginia community to achieve self-sufficiency.

As a CARE Award recipient, ENSCO is proud to demonstrate community involvement and impact, health and wellness benefits, work-life programs and policies, and development and education programs. “Being awarded the CARE Award confirms that we not only talk the talk, we walk the walk. I view this recognition as a tribute to the hard work of everyone within our company,” said ENSCO President Boris Nejikovsky. By partnering with NVFS, ENSCO is honored to celebrate and contribute to create a stronger, more vibrant Northern Virginia.

When homes are affordable and accessible to jobs, good schools and transportation, everyone benefits. Individual lives are improved and communities as a whole grow stronger. Virginia Housing was created in 1972 by the General Assembly to help Virginians attain quality, affordable housing. We carry out this mission by working in public-private partnerships with local governments, community service organizations, lenders, Realtors, developers and many others. We provide mortgages for first-time homebuyers, as well as financing for apartment communities and neighborhood revitalization efforts. We offer free homebuyer classes, support housing counseling, and help people with disabilities and the elderly make their homes more livable. We also administer the federal Housing Choice Voucher and Housing Credit programs in Virginia. Virginia Housing is self-supporting and receives no state taxpayer dollars to fund our programs. Instead, we raise money in the capital markets, and we contribute a significant portion of our net revenues each year to help meet Virginia’s most difficult housing needs.
