What is the Housing Opportunities Collaborative?
The Housing Opportunities Collaborative is a new initiative intended to expand opportunities for those experiencing homelessness in Fairfax County. The Collaborative is a project of the Fairfax-Falls Church Partnership to Prevent and End Homelessness, which includes countless nonprofits and government organizations, all working to end homelessness in our community. It is being jointly administered through Fairfax County’s Office to Prevent and End Homelessness and Cornerstones, a community nonprofit. The Collaborative uses a multi-layered approach to achieve our overall goal:
1) Assist in landlord engagement and recruitment efforts,
2) Streamline information and communication between nonprofit agencies and the larger community regarding housing location services, and
3) Provide ample training and professional development opportunities to frontline staff who provide housing locations services.
