As I look at the growth of Shelter House since our inception in 1981, I am extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve. I am even more excited about our outlook for an equally promising future. We have successfully managed full operation of three major shelters in Fairfax County. We have transitioned from managing homeless issues to gathering the support of our community and establishing strategies to END homelessness.
It is satisfying to know that we have the support of our local government, our staff, and our community in acquiring the necessary resources to reach our goals. This collective support enables us to continue to launch new strategies and establish new partnerships. As a result, we are able to ensure the families in our community have a safe and stable place to call home.
Talented Staff: Among our most important assets is the well qualified and passionate staff. They empower the families and children to become independent citizens of our community. From our Executive staff to our Leadership Team and front line Service Delivery Team; Shelter House is committed to delivering the highest quality service and providing unparalleled service to our clients.
Community Focus: Shelter House is committed to the community in which we do business. We are dedicated to the Blueprint for Success in preventing and ending homelessness in Fairfax County. Through our work with the State, County, large businesses, small business and individuals; we are vested both professionally and fiscally as we continue to assess the needs and work hard to to identify solutions.
Collaboration: As our community strengthens, each new day offers a chance for us to work together, pursue new opportunities and improve upon the past. We establish in-depth relationships with our clients by learning their environments and the challenges they face. In doing so, we are better equipped to offer tangible solutions. We continue to manage our business around the evolving needs of our community– and that puts us at the forefront of CHANGING LIVES.
