Homelessness is a national epidemic, and is dealt with in many different ways. According to the Homelessness in Metropolitan Washington survey, 113 people experienced homelessness in Loudoun County at the end of 2017, a 15.6% increase from the previous year. Loudoun County continues to help its small, but rising homeless population by providing food and shelter to those in need, and by maintaining a large and versatile amount of charities and outreach organizations in every corner of the county. With the Holiday Season, the season of giving, rapidly approaching, more ways to leave a positive footprint on the local community are available, with these Loudoun County organizations open, willing, and able to provide relief.

Loudoun Hunger Relief:

Formerly Loudoun Interfaith Relief, the pantry has been a fixture in Loudoun County for 26 years, offering food assistance to the hungry and needy in the county through numerous volunteers, donations, and food drives. Standing alone as the area’s largest food bank, they work to provide those in need with food and other necessities. To support the organization, you can either donate non perishable food items or your time and money.
