-- Nova Health and Wellness's continued initiative to support their community.
Nova Health and Wellness, a Northern Virginia Chiropractic Office, today announced that they are supporting Fairfax County’s newest homeless shelter, Katherine Hanley Shelter & Hope Foundation, during this holiday season.
"The Katherine K. Hanley Family Shelter is the first shelter in Fairfax County to operate on the “Housing First/Rapid Re-housing” model, which emphasizes moving families into permanent housing as quickly as possible and continuing to work with them once they are in permanent housing. The model is based on the premise that families respond better to services when they are in their own homes, as compared to in shelters. Immediately upon entry to the shelter, families are assessed for major housing barriers. Shelter House then assists families to overcome those barriers. The family is moved as quickly as possible into appropriate housing. As a result, the average length of stay for families in the shelter will decrease. Shelter House’s goal is that most families will spend only 45 days at the Katherine K. Hanley Shelter." ~http://www.shelterhouse.org/Programs/Katherine-K.-Hanley-...
