Detailed Description: Shelter House is a private nonprofit organization Incorporated in 1981. Its mission is to provide temporary emergency housing and supportive services to homeless families in order to enable them to transition to permanent housing and a stable, self-sufficient family life.
Shelter House carries out its mission in partnership with Fairfax County, local human services agencies, a wide variety of ecumenical groups and community organizations as well as private sector sponsors and friends. Shelter House programs have a three-fold purpose:
1. To provide a secure, structured environment where families can regain a sense of stability and perspective.
2. To respond to identified client needs with a variety of supportive services, which enhance the individualís employment and housing status, educational level, medical care and personal growth.
3. To promote healthy, stable, families who are connected to a network of community supporters and opportunities.
