Vice Chair

Brian has worked in the legal field for 15 years and has always had a passion for community service. He has been able to fuse these two passions through his pro bono practice, representing many individuals facing eviction completely free of charge. After learning more about the unique challenges that individuals who are unstably housed face, Brian became interested in supporting our neighbors facing homelessness and poverty in other ways through FACETS. Brian lives in Falls Church with his wife Jessica, three kids, and a miniature poodle rescue.


Pat McCall spent most of her career in mortgage finance, and decided she wanted to spend her retirement helping our unhoused neighbors. Pat has always been community-oriented, a lifelong volunteer in church and school organizations, community sports leagues, local conservation groups, and more. For Pat, it was a natural choice to join FACETS’ Board, which meets the need of our neighbors right here in Fairfax County. Having worked in financial services for 35 years, FACETS appeals to Pat in the unique way we are able to leverage government funding with private fundraising to more effectively serve our community.
