Mission Statement


FACETS opens doors by helping parents, their children, and individuals who suffer the effects of poverty in Fairfax County.

Description


FACETS opens doors by helping parents, their children and individuals who suffer the effects of poverty – so often unnoticed – in Fairfax County. We meet their emergency shelter, food, and medical needs, help them gain safe, sustainable and permanent housing and work with them to end the cycle of poverty through educational, life skills and career counseling programs. FACETS was founded in 1988 to respond to the diverse needs of people impacted by poverty in Fairfax, Virginia. We began as an outreach project by our founder, Linda D. Wimpey, who, in partnership with several area churches, prepared and delivered hot meals to families who were homeless three nights a week. This program continues to this day, and we have since expanded from operating as an emergency food program to a full-time staff of professionals, an engaged board of directors and a range of programs that work to break the cycle of poverty and prevent and end homelessness in our community
