100K Homes Fairfax Shows Progress

100K Homes Fairfax: Signs of Progress

Registry Week was a powerful way to kick off this three-year campaign. Public awareness generated through volunteer engagement, news media attention and political leadership has generated significant support for the campaign, and for real results. We appreciate the continued hard work of our partners as we move forward with the 100,000 Homes Fairfax campaign

Despite the significant challenges facing campaign partners post-Registry Week, we have had significant success in moving chronically homeless and vulnerable individuals into stable housing.

There is much to do in order to accomplish our goals in the campaign. Three committees have formed post-Registry Week in order to manage our next steps. >> more


Consumer Advisory Council

Consumer Advisory Council Celebrates Success

The Consumer Advisory Council (CAC) has much to celebrate. The group recently marked some significant milestones, including their first anniversary and the election of their first officers this past May.

“Being on the CAC renders to me a tangible way to give back for the help I received during my time of need. Being a CAC officer affords me an additional way to serve and is thus both humbling and gratifying. I am truly thankful.” ~ Jeff Lisanick, CAC Chairman. >> more


Mondloch Place

Mondloch Place ~ Why it Matters

Most communities across the United States have realized that traditional solutions to homelessness are inadequate. Despite the best of intentions and significant resources, traditional solutions relied on simply sheltering people who are homeless. Many communities took an innovative approach and, as a result, have seen the number of 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 America.

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. >> more
