Helping the Homeless in Fairfax
Last month, we partnered with Our Daily Bread Fairfax to help Fairfax families in-need — those who are at risk of becoming homeless. This month, are partnering with The Lamb Center in Fairfax, VA, who provides services to Fairfax’s homeless.
The Lamb Center focuses on ending homelessness and providing hope. But to make a difference in homelessness, food, clothing and hot showers are just the first steps. Almost every person The Lamb Center encounters needs job counseling, transportation and housing. The Lamb Center works with other organizations, ministries and government agencies to help people get back on their feet.
We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.
– Mother Teresa
The Lamb Center has served over forty-four thousand meals, hosted more than 364 AA meetings, and has provided over 600 job counseling sessions in 2012 alone. They are working diligently to help transform the lives of the homeless in Fairfax.
This December, we are donating $1 from every haircut to The Lamb Center. Also, upon checkout, you will have an opportunity to add $1, $3, or $5 to donate to The Lamb Center. Please take a moment to learn about other volunteering needs the The Lamb Center has.
