Loudoun County is one of the richest counties in America and yet, it is faced with issues of families being displaced due to hard economic times, family members who have faced abusive situations seeking safe shelter, and homeless children and teenagers. Other areas of need include assistance with affordable housing and modifications that have allowed many to find or stay in their homes.
