Fairfax-Falls Church Community Partnership to End Homelessness produced their annual snapshot that showed real progress in the fight to end homelessness. The number of homeless was down 14% with the partnership helping 2,892 people. Supervisor Jeff McKay noted that 875 of those were children - the size of an elementary school; however, to win the fight they need help. You can
- donate! $25 feeds a family for a day
- volunteer! Help is needed to train homeless people for employment
- educate! Work within your job, family and church about causes and solutions to to homeless issues.
