Hypothermia Prevention Program Begins December 1, 2021

The Fairfax County Hypothermia Prevention Program for people experiencing homelessness begins on December 1, 2021. Since 2005, the program has prevented death and serious injuries among our most vulnerable residents by ensuring that no one must sleep outside during the winter months. This program - available to any adult in need of immediate shelter - provides warm shelter, food, and other supportive services to help connect guests to a variety of basic needs such as clothing, employment, housing, and more. It remains a highly effective partnership between government, nonprofits, and the faith community.

All NCS Community, Teen, and Senior Centers are warming centers. Center staff are prepared to accommodate any community walk-in needs during our operating hours. 

For more information on the program and hypothermia, see the Office to Prevent and End Homelessness webpage
