Strategy: Deliver Services for Stable Housing

Preventing and Ending HomelessnessStrategy #3 Deliver Services to Obtain and Maintain Stable Housing

A services system, unified in philosophy and goals, collaborative and innovative, will reduce the challenges facing homeless people who need housing with supports. This strategy will place homeless people in housing quickly; will prioritize those who are homeless or near homeless for services; and will minimize barriers to eligibility for services.



  • Change the existing shelter system to implement a “housing first” model.

  • Ensure that people who are homeless or near homeless are a priority for the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board.

  • Implement a service delivery system that builds trust.

  • Develop interdisciplinary Neighborhood Service Teams.

  • Provide increased outreach to unsheltered individuals.

  • Integrate mental health and substance abuse services.

  • Establish a housing assistance fund.

  • Provide training to county and nonprofit staff and volunteers.

  • Engage volunteers and faith-based organizations in service delivery.
