Hope Housing was founded in 1977 as Route One Corridor Housing by local citizens concerned about people they
saw living on the street and in camps along the Route One Corridor. In 1978
they opened the first homeless shelter in Fairfax County. Over time, they
realized the need was much greater and opened a family shelter and a second
shelter for adults in the early 1980s. Pamela L. Michell was hired as Executive
Director in 1990 and would lead New Hope Housing to develop new post-shelter
options that included transitional and permanent housing. Today, New Hope
Housing operates 7 shelter programs, 2 transitional housing, 9 permanent supportive
housing programs, as well as outreach and prevention programs in Fairfax
County, Arlington County, Alexandria, and Falls Church.
