St Mark Hypothermia Shelter
This is the 13th season that FACETS and area faith communities across Fairfax County are hosting safe places for homeless men and women to sleep and eat during the cold winter months. Can you raise your hand and help St. Mark support other area faith communities, as we do not shelter in our buildings.
Thank you to all who have so generously shared their talents throughout these years.
