Fairfax County Board Of Supervisors Approves $9.7M For Wesley Housing's Affordable Development

Leading nonprofit affordable housing developer, Wesley Housing, is pleased to announce the Fairfax County Board of Supervisor’s approval of $9.7 million loan from the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) to develop a new affordable housing community in the Bailey’s Crossroads neighborhood in Falls Church.

Formerly referred to as the First Christian Church of Falls Church site, but recently named “Kindred Crossing”, the new construction will be an inclusive and accessible residential community featuring 95 affordable, independent living homes for older adults ages 62+. The community will cater to a diverse range of individuals with incomes from less than or equal to 30% to 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI).

Kindred Crossing, the first affordable housing community developed through a faith-based partnership in Fairfax County, will be located on the land immediately adjacent to the existing First Christian Church of Falls Church (6165 Leesburg Pike). In addition to the affordable homes, the building will include 4,600 sq. ft. of commercial space. Nonprofit healthcare entity, Culmore Clinic, currently located in the existing First Christian Church building, intends to relocate to the commercial space. The clinic currently provides free healthcare to uninsured residents in Fairfax County.

“Fairfax County’s support of this development is instrumental in addressing two of the leading social determinants of health within the Bailey’s Crossroads community – quality affordable housing and access to health care,” said Kamilah McAfee, President and CEO of Wesley Housing. “This loan provides vital local financing leverage that will strengthen our ability to compete for state-level 9% Low-Income Housing Tax Credits during next month’s competitive application process,” McAfee added.

“The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority is committed to delivering groundbreaking solutions for today’s affordable housing needs in Fairfax County. Kindred Crossing represents a true community partnership, bringing together a faith-based organization, non-profit developer, community health entity, and local government to develop a truly unique affordable housing solution that will care for the whole needs of older adults in the Bailey’s Crossroads area,” said Lenore Stanton, Chair, FCRHA.

 “This approval represents a significant step forward in our ongoing efforts to create a more inclusive and accessible community for older adults in Fairfax County,” said Mason District Supervisor Andres Jimenez.


Kindred Crossing encapsulates Wesley Housing’s and the Church’s shared vision of a home where individuals from varied backgrounds, cultures, and experiences will converge to create a vibrant, supportive, and close-knit living environment. 

Wesley Housing extends its gratitude to the Church’s thoughtful stewardship of their land, and to all partners, stakeholders, and supporters who are helping to make Kindred Crossing a reality. Together, we will create a high-quality and innovative asset to address the housing and healthcare inequities faced by our most vulnerable community members.
