Bethlehem will host a hypothermia shelter
March 5-11, 2017
Each year hundreds of individuals living on the streets, in cars, and abandoned buildings in Fairfax County/City search for shelter from the often bitter winter weather. Since 2003, BLC has partnered with FACETS and other faith communities to offer safe places to sleep and nutritious meals to men and women who are homeless through our Hypothermia Prevention and Response Program.
...In his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Dr. King wrote, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” We have an opportunity to continue the legacy and vision of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. not just on King Day, but every day, at all times and in all places.
