Community Summit to End Homelessness


Community Summit to End Homelessness

The Community Summit to End Homelessness brought together community members on April 7, 2006, including government, business and nonprofit leaders, with experts from around the nation to generate new ideas and solutions to end homelessness in Fairfax County. This community summit, requested by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and funded by Freddie Mac and the Freddie Mac Foundation, reflects the nationwide effort by communities to end, rather than manage, the problem of homelessness.
