    We Care                                           
    Our community is one of the most civic minded, close knit communities in the greater Washington area and we are understandably proud of it.   For years, Family PASS families in need -- the working poor in Fairfax County --have benefited from the enormous generosity of the businesses, civic organization, churches and individuals in our community.
    In 2018, with this support, we helped over 75 adults (52 families) and over 130 children remain housed.
    As you may know Family PASS helps homeless families and those facing eviction in Fairfax. We focus on families because the children in these families pay the biggest price for poverty. We want to stop this cycle of homelessness and poverty for the next generation.
    In October Family PASS launched Sock it to Me, a fundraising campaign. Our goal:  enlisting 500 people/businesses to pledge a minimum of $25 a month for one year to help us increase the number of families we can help in 2019.
    Business Cares
    Beginning in January, we have been asking area businesses to join the Sock it To Me campaign as a Business Cares participant in the campaign.  In recognition of your support, Family PASS will keep your business on a running list of contributors to Sock It To Me, with a link to your website on our website throughout the year and special postings about  your business with links on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
    Did you know there are over 3000 homeless students in Fairfax County?
    To learn more about Family PASS please join us for breakfast on April 24th.  You will hear success stories from our former clients, and learn about homelessness in Fairfax County from Tom Barnett of the county’s Office to Prevent and End Homelessness, and Kathi Sheffel, Homeless Liaison, Fairfax County Public Schools.
