    • About

      For more than 40 years, GSH has helped end homelessness an enable self-sufficiency by providing affordable housing and emergency financial services to low-income and working-class families and individuals in Fairfax County.

      In our area, a market analysis found that for every two families making between 30 and 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI), there is only one affordable unit of housing available to them.

      To address these needs we offer several programs.

      Apartments Budgeting Counseling (ABC)
      We help low-income, working-class families and individuals as well as those with fixed incomes, to obtain housing that is affordable. Once housed with GSH, we provide them individualized case management that will help them address structural barriers to long-term housing, such as poor credit histories, little or no savings, and limited or very low incomes.

      Housing As Top Priority (HTP)
      GSH offers low-income, working-class families and individuals a bridge to affordable rental housing in the community, along with guidance, support and limited financial assistance. The primary goal is housing stability for homeless or at-risk households.

      Emergency Services Assistance (ES)
      GSH provides grants up to $350 per family (one-time within a year) to prevent evictions and utility disconnections. Applicants requesting assistance are carefully evaluated for factors that lead to long-term housing stability.

      Children's Resources
      We help ensure that children in our housing programs have access to critical after-school and extracurricular enrichment activities.
