Helping Our Neighbors in Crisis

FACETS is one of the largest social safety nets for families, children, and individuals in Fairfax County, Virginia. At FACETS, we meet people where they are, usually at the most vulnerable time in their lives, and help them build stronger futures.

We do this by offering emergency and basic needs assistance along with individualized case management to enable them to become self-sufficient and break the cycle of homelessness, poverty, and hunger.

Transforming Lives

From providing emergency shelter and connecting those in need with life-saving services, to securing permanent housing and charting a path to a stable, successful future, we are convening the community to help keep our neighbors warm, dry, fed, and safe.
