    • About

      Founded in 1977 by citizens concerned about people they saw living on the street and in camps along Route One, New Hope Housing opened the first homeless shelter in Fairfax County in 1978, serving 8 single adults. The agency has grown over its forty-one year history, responding to community needs. Pamela Michell was hired as Executive Director in 1990 and developed post-shelter options that included transitional and permanent housing. Today, New Hope Housing operates 6 shelters, 3 transitional housing, 9 permanent supportive housing, outreach, prevention, and employment programs in Fairfax County, Arlington County, Alexandria, and Falls Church. New Hope Housing provides permanent housing and/or case management to 160 adults and 15 families for periods of a year or longer. We provide shelter for approximately 119 adults on any given night and up to 80 more per night in winter. Last year, more than 1,300 total individuals received shelter, housing, and/or services from New Hope Housing. 332 single adults and 37 families were moved from homelessness to permanent housing.

      The mission of New Hope Housing is to provide homeless families and individuals shelter, housing, and the tools to build a better life.

      The vision we work for is a home and bright future for every man, woman and child in our community.
