The Help the Homeless walk sponsored by Fannie Mae is November 17, starting at 9am on the Mall. It’s a really fun event, and quite enormous in its magnitude.
Just to give you a snapshot of the metro area in Fairfax/Falls Church almost half of all homeless adults in families are employed. Given the cost of living in this area, it makes total sense. Anyway, I highly encourage you to participate, donate some money or donate some time to the overall cause. For a little more background you can visit this page
