Nearly one year ago, the Fairfax-Falls Church partnership kicked off its local 100K Homes campaign with Registry Week, during which over 200 volunteers created a registry of the most vulnerable and chronically homeless people in our community. The registry was the first of its kind for the Fairfax-Falls Church community and helped put a real face on homelessness.

A recent email from Becky Kanis, director of the national 100K Homes campaign at Community Solutions, welcomed Fairfax County to a group of the highest performing communities in the country, the “2.5 Percent Club.” This induction recognizes that our community is now housing at least 2.5 percent of our chronic and vulnerable homeless neighbors each month, which puts us on a path to move everyone from the streets into housing.
