Mondloch Place.

Mondloch Place Residents Move In

Mondloch Place opened its doors for move-in on Sept. 20. New Hope Housing staff and local volunteers have been onsite daily to host and welcome each new resident. Volunteers have been busy at work setting up linens in the bedrooms; dishes, pots, pans and coffee pots in the kitchenettes; and plenty more. Volunteers have also been onsite daily to host a “welcome celebration” for every new resident walking through the doors.

Most of the new residents of Mondloch Place have been homeless for many years. Nearly half of them were counted at the 100,000 Homes Fairfax Registry Week that took place this past February.

We are well on our way to meeting our goal of housing more than 50 homeless singles for our first year of the 100,000 Homes Project! >> more
