Herndon UMC is again participating in the North County Hypothermia Prevention (NCHP) Program which is operated by Cornerstones in Reston. It is one of four hypothermia prevention sites in Fairfax County that serves a hot meal and offers a warm shelter every night for 30 men or women from December 1 through March 31, regardless of the temperature, preventing weather-induced illness and loss of life among unsheltered homeless men and women in our community.
Our Neighbors in Need Ministry prides itself in providing well balanced, healthy, warm meals for those in need. Our dinners this year are
- Sundays, December 3 & 17
- Mondays, January 15, February 5 & 26; and
- Monday, March 19.
If you see someone who is unsheltered and may need hypothermia prevention help, please call 703-691-2131. FCPS has six emergency shelters with added capacity in the winter, and Fairfax County has dozens of faith communities who also help provide shelter all winter long.
