Hypothermia Prevention and Response Program

 

 

This year FACETS Hypothermia Prevention and Response Program will be operated at 31 Church locations in Fairfax County.  These sites offer dinner, a warm place to sleep, professional case management services and breakfast the next morning, helping our neighbors experiencing homelessness find respite from the cold winter nights and a path to a home.

In operation since 2003, the program has evolved from solely offering a safe haven to also offering life-enhancing programs. In the 2015-2016 season, FACETS served 386 guests in our Hypothermia Prevention and Response Program. 125 guests engaged in case management services, leading to 34 individuals being rapidly rehoused and not returning to sleeping in the woods, their cars or on the streets at the conclusion of the program.

Start Time:                                     5pm
