Housing First hits Fairfax county

Off the street and back on your feet faster, teaching people to be tenants and housed rather than the coping skills to survive life in a shelter. That is Housing First and it is my favorite type of Homeless Recovery Service.

Read how it is working in Fairfax with a young single mother who is preparing to serve in the Armed Forces as soon as she gives birth to her daughter. This is her second turn through Homelessness and Housing First could end the cycle with the support services built into the concept.
