Mission

Goals

Support our local communities, Education, and the Environment with sweat, equity, money, and passion.

Values

Celebrate diversity, encourage community outreach, and champion educational and cultural initiatives.

Local
Participation

Overaa encourages participation by local talent. Our team has created outreach programs in a wide range of areas, from engaging community-based business enterprises to training and mentorship programs for local youth in the construction trades. Our depth of resources includes established partnerships with diverse trade partners with whom we regularly collaborate.

Richmond Build

NBC 11 News reports on the difference that was made for one local teen hired through RichmondBUILD to work for Overaa during the summer.
