In Mount Vernon District, we have a history of helping all of our neighbors.

Kennedy Shelter Allies is a coalition of groups around the Route 1 community who support speedy construction of a new Kennedy Shelter for our homeless residents. Shelters provides emergency housing and assistance in finding a new home. Groups included are: Ventures in Community, South County Task Force, New Hope Housing, and the social justice committees of Mount Vernon Unitarian Church, Groveton Baptist Church, and the Mt Vernon Democratic Committee, Indivisible Below the Beltway, Rising Hope UCM, NOV

Proposed location for Kennedy Shelter 2.0

The modern Kennedy Shelter 2.0 can be located with the new Penn Daw Fire Station on Route 1. This location provides access to public transportation and employment opportunities that are essential to securing permanent housing. The co-location of the shelter and the Penn Daw Fire Station will also reduce costs for Fairfax County and its residents.
