Many, many thanks to the 65 volunteers who went into the woods and up and down Route One to interview unsheltered homeless men and women for the 100,000 Homes Fairfax County Registry Event! Volunteers completed 148 surveys! The information they collected will be used to help determine who our most vulnerable homeless population is and what the most effective means of getting them housed will be. Thanks to Ourisman Ford & Lincoln and Ourisman Chrysler Jeep Dodge for the use of vehicles for the survey. Hats off to Sherry Edelkamp (second from left, front row) for coordinating the registry event in the South County region. Sherry coordinates the VICHOP winter hypothermia program–her genuine care for the homeless individuals she serves is evident and inspiring!
New Hope Housing’sExecutive Director Pam Michell and New Hope Housing Board member Lexalynn Hooper conducted interviews each morning at 5:00 a.m.!
