Lamb Center, The
The Lamb Center serves homeless guests who are located primarily in the central area of Fairfax, although chronically homeless individuals from all across the County are familiar with the Lamb Center and the majority of them have received services from it. Although there is no homeless shelter located in central Fairfax that serves single adults, inexpensive motels, patches of wooded areas and a sprawling commercial and industrial landscape, coupled with the availability of public transportation, make it a logical area for homeless single adults to stay. There is no other program in the County like the Lamb Center. During the day, when the Lamb Center is open and serving guests, is when so many of the needs of these individuals can be addressed. Besides the physical needs of hunger and personal hygiene, and spiritual needs of compassion and community, there are many case management needs or issues that each guest, with the help of staff, can focus on. Lamb Center staff work hard to provide employment counseling and job placement assistance, individual counseling and recovery planning, transportation assistance, help to acquire or re-acquire valid IDs, and referrals to a variety of housing, medical, and other County services.
