Reston Interfaith partners with Fairfax County to operate the North County Hypothermia Prevention Program (NCHP), one of three hypothermia prevention sites in Fairfax County. The center works to prevent weather-induced illness and loss of life among unsheltered homeless adult men and women in our community.
Unsheltered homeless people are those who, whether by choice or by lack of shelter space, live outdoors, in cars, or in other places unsuitable for human habitation. During the 2011-2012 season, NCHP served over 239 guests.
