Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter

Emergency shelter for single individuals in Fairfax County

Update: BCCS operations will transfer to a new operator on Oct. 1, 2017.

Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter (BCCS), a 50-bed emergency homeless shelter located in Falls Church, Va., provides single adults with safe emergency shelter and the support necessary to create a path toward permanent housing. NVFS has operated this shelter since 2015, including oversight of Fairfax County’s Region 2 Hypothermia Program. Through this program, which runs from Nov. 1 – March 31, every person who needs shelter is brought in to avoid the dangers of harsh winter weather.

BCCS also offers a drop-in program to provide respite to individuals in need, including the opportunity to bathe, receive a healthy meal and wash their clothes.
