Hypothermia Prevention Program 2017

Volunteer Donate

On December 24th – 31st Epiphany will once again welcome those in need of shelter as part of Fairfax County’s Hypothermia Prevention and Response Program. We will welcome more than 70 guests this year.

Program Facts:

  • Over 30 faith communities participate in this effort November through March each year
  • Guests are provided with not only shelter, but warm food, transportation and entertainment
  • This is a 100% volunteer effort. We enable the program through the work of dedicated volunteers and parish-generated donations – monetary, food and other necessary items.
  • During the program, guests can interact with case managers, whose goal is to assist them with rapid rehousing.

How You Can Help:

  • Sign up to volunteer: Various opportunities are available. All volunteers are required to go through training, more details at the sign up web page.
  • Commit to a donation: We need food, household items and monetary  contributions.
  • Spread the word: Please help us spread about this initiative among your community – some of them may want to volunteer or contribute!
