Special Edition: 2010 Snapshot

For the very first time, the Fairfax-Falls Church Partnership to Prevent and End Homelessness has released a snapshot of communitywide data that reflect the outcomes of our 10-year plan goals, our collective successes and challenges, and the tremendous need that exists in our community. >> more



Unsheltered Outreach

Our community works every day to provide shelter, services and support to those who live unsheltered in the woods or on the streets. Despite our efforts, one of our neighbors died due to hypothermia in FY 2010. His life is a reminder to each of us of the importance of winter seasonal programs, in addition to other outreach programs. >> more




Community Partnership

The 10-Year Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness was written by the community, and all efforts to implement the plan belong to the community. With this in mind, nearly every step that has been taken has been made by a consortium of partners from the business, faith-based, nonprofit and local government communities. >> more




Preventing Homelessness

In 2009 alone, more than 100,000 people in our community were spending more than 30 percent of their income on housing, making them just one paycheck away from homelessness. Our community has helped many people remain in their homes and return to self-sufficiency with some limited assistance. >> more





Bringing People Home

In light of the needs of the people we serve in the Fairfax-Falls Church community, the goal of ending homelessness will be achieved by meeting people where they are and focusing on helping them quickly obtain and maintain appropriate permanent housing. >> more




Keeping Families Together

Many children, families and single adults in our community face the threats of homelessness. Our community works tirelessly to provide shelter and housing programs for these many individuals who often are victims of domestic violence or live doubled up with family or friends. >> more
