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.
