group recently marked some significant
milestones, including their first anniversary and
the election of their first officers this past May.

Mondloch Place ~ Why it Matters
Most communities across the United States have realized
that traditional solutions to homelessness are

people on the street plummet to numbers not seen in decades.
Evidence indicates that “supportive housing” is a better
answer to the question of how to end chronic homelessness in
Operated by New Hope
Housing, Mondloch Place will be the first of its kind
in the Fairfax-Falls Church community. Supportive
residences like Mondloch Place expand affordable housing
opportunities to the individuals at the lowest end of the
economic spectrum and those with the greatest need.
