More than 2,000 people in Fairfax County are homeless, of which more than 700 are children. The discussions from these meetings will help a community-based team craft a 10-year plan to end homelessness for one of the most affluent areas of the country. The plan will be presented to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors later this year.
