With a median annual income above $100,000, Fairfax County is one of the richest counties in the nation. Yet over 60,000 people live below the poverty line: in 2015, the county received 5,824 requests for food assistance, 4,730 for rental assistance, and another 2,595 for assistance in paying utilities. Serving over 2,000 people a year, FACETS aims to rapidly re-house those who have lost their homes, and prevent homelessness for those in the most at-risk circumstances. From providing daily on-call services to preventing hypothermia in the brutal winter months, from reaching out to single adults and families in danger of eviction or foreclosure to providing permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless individuals, FACETS believes that a stable home for the county’s most vulnerable people comes first. A Homeless Healthcare program connects individuals to much-needed health and dental services, while Hot Meals serves over 20,000 free meals a year. With an active volunteer base of over 3,000 people, FACETS serves those in the greatest need – and mobilizes the community to do the same.
