The mission of the Falls Church Homeless Shelter is to better the lives of single adults who are experiencing homelessness in the Falls Church area by providing temporary shelter, and assisting these individuals with accessing permanent affordable housing and other services needed to maintain a stable housing environment.
The Falls Church Homeless Shelter is a 501(C)3 organization which began operations in January 1996. In partnership with New Hope Housing, the Shelter provides warm beds, meals, and counseling to the homeless in Falls Church from November through April, and offers year round case management for Shelter residents.
We take pride in being a grassroots organization. Over 200 volunteers each year lend their support and the Board of Directors, composed of volunteers, is responsible for management of operations, recruiting volunteers, fundraising, and contracting. Approximately 80% of the funds required to run the Shelter has come from private sources, including individuals, faith communities, businesses, schools, and foundations.
