Shelter-07

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.

100WomenStrong recommends grants to applicants, allowing them to better accomplish, or increase their capacity to fulfill their mission. Each of these grants increases the quality of life for the residents of Loudoun County.
