Do you know me?
I am 18 years old and grew up in the foster care system. I was never adopted by a family, and have now aged out of foster care. With no family to support me, I couldn’t apply to college. I am working a minimum wage job but don’t have anyone to share the cost of rent. I am now temporarily staying in a local homeless shelter, but I will have to leave within the next couple of months.
Can you see me? I am one of the many faces of Fairfax County’s homeless community. Please help the homeless be seen. This link will bring you to a page to find out what you can do to help the homeless in Fairfax County.
