Huffington Post “DC Impact” Blog Finds Homeless Activism in Fairfax County

Amanda Andere, CEO of FACETS, keeps a wonderful blog chronicling the efforts of homeless advocates in the DC area. This week’s entry dove into the 100,000 Homes Fairfax Campaign. Much like HUD’s Point in Time campaign, the organization gathers over 200 volunteers for “Registry Week”…a two day event hiking through the woods and elsewhere to officially register homeless individuals living outdoors.

“Our quest was to find men and women who are chronically homeless around Fairfax County,” writes Andere. “But what seemed like “deep into the woods” was really only a stone’s throw from gated communities and high-end shopping centers that make up the county, one of the nation’s wealthiest.”

Read on to learn more about Registry Week, FACETS and the 100,000 Homes Campaign.
