Office to Prevent and End Homelessness April 5, 2010 Funders Tour


Fairfax County Office to Prevent and End Homelessness organized a successful funders tour on April 5 to encourage and cultivate philanthropic partnerships to provide additional support to individuals and families who are homeless in the Fairfax-Falls Church Community. The event included tours of two homeless programs, Reston Interfaith and Shelter House, showcasing high performing nonprofit homeless organizations and the innovative services they are providing to assist individuals and families as they move toward self-sufficiency.

The majority of the funders that participated have already expressed interest to begin exploring various opportunities to invest valuable resources in programs that will bring strong results and move us forward with the 10-Year Plan goals.

Much participation was received from Fairfax County leaders, including opening remarks from Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova, a presentation upon guest’s arrival at the first site visit by Hunter Mill District Supervisor Catherine M. Hudgins, and supporting remarks from Dranesville District Supervisor John W. Foust at the second site visit. In addition to over 10 local and national funders that attended the event, several nonprofit executives shared information about their programs, challenges and successes. Representatives from the Governing Board also were present along with Deputy County Executive Patricia Harrison and representation from the Corporation for Supportive Housing.
