Success Stories

“Families working to achieve self-sufficiency can benefit directly from your support. Whether you donate gift cards to purchase clothes that fit or you donate blankets and pots and pans to stock a family moving into their own place, your donations mean strength and hope for hard-working families.”

“Volunteers contributed over 5,800 hours last fiscal year, helping children with their homework, painting worn walls and collecting goods that our families need. The significance of this impact cannot be overrated; our volunteer partners put the pulse in our work and engage communities in solving homelessness.”

“I just wanted to thank you all for the big help and support given to us these past years. Shelter House has really made a big difference in our family. Also, please know that we greatly appreciate all your generosity and kindness towards our family. We will miss everyone, since we have considered you all part of our family. Once again many thanks and may God bless you always.”

“Dave,” a father of three, came to PHFS’s emergency unit with his three daughters.  He became homeless as a result of losing his job. During his time in shelter, he worked with PHFS’s Employment Specialist and obtained full-time employment at a pest control company.   His daughters benefitted from after-school tutoring.   Dave then added a part-time job to his full-time one in order to further increase his family’s income.  He is now also working as an administrative assistant to a real estate agent, while also studying to become a licensed real estate agent himself.  Dave worked with PHFS’s Housing Locator and his Case Manager and located permanent housing in western Fairfax.   Since moving to housing, he has benefitted from the continued support of Community Case Management with Shelter House.   He also had his truck repaired gratis by the Wheels to Work program with Virginia Tire and Auto. These free repairs allowed him to continue to work without interruption.
