Pathway Homes Hosts Help the Homeless Walk in Fairfax
Fairfax, VA (October 28, 2012) On October 27th , nearly one hundred Fairfax County residents , including Fairfax County Supervisor Hudgins and the President of Signature Renovations, joined together to participate in a Help the Homeless (HTH) community walk hosted by Pathway Homes in Fairfax County. Nearly $40,000 was raised to help prevent and end homelessness in Fairfax County. This is the one of hundreds of HTH community walks taking place across the nation.
On any given night, more than 600,000 people are without homes across the United States. The HTH Program raises funds to support organizations working to prevent and end homelessness. Since 1988, it has raised more than $90 million, impacting thousands of adults, children, and veterans in the Washington metropolitan area. With the success of the program in the Washington metropolitan area, in 2012, HTH has expanded to five additional markets, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia.
At Pathway Homes, 60 percent of the nearly 400 individuals served have either been homeless or would be homeless with the services provided by Pathways. Since 1999, Pathways has been a participant in the HTH walk raising more than $300,000 to directly fund the critical housing needs of people with mental illness in Northern Virginia.
