A local homeless shelter will soon have a new operator.
Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS) has announced that it will soon be stepping down as the operator of the Hilda Barg Homeless Prevention Center in Woodbridge.
“It has been an honor to be a part of the long and rich community history of the Hilda Barg Homeless Prevention Center,” NVFS President & CEO Stephanie Berkowitz said in a letter to supporters. “Our commitment to the well-being of all residents of Prince William County is as strong as ever. We look forward to staying connected with you as we continue to deliver critical homeless, anti-hunger, early childhood education, and many other services to the community on our SERVE campus and throughout the Greater Prince William Area.”
The shelter seeks to help community members “find permanent pathways out of homelessness,” according to the NVFS website.
NVFS, an Oakton-based non-profit, will work with Prince William County during the transition to a new operator.
