Who We Are

The Lamb Center is a daytime drop-in shelter for individuals (our guests) who are experiencing homelessness in Fairfax, Virginia. We provide breakfast, lunch, showers, laundry service, Bible studies, case management, employment opportunities, housing and job counseling, AA meetings, small group opportunities, nurse practitioner services, a dental clinic, and much more.

As a Christian ecumenical community of faith, the Lamb Center works on behalf of all people experiencing poverty or homelessness regardless of race, religion, creed, or any other status. The core values of Christianity are central to the Lamb Center's ministry: loving God with all one’s heart, soul, mind, and strength; and loving one’s neighbors as oneself. Together, our staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, and supporters provide a community of fellowship, support, empowerment, and learning together that grows ever stronger in relationship with our guests.

Our Mission

To live out the compassionate heart of Christ by serving our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Our Vision

A community where every individual is known, cherished, and has a place to call home.

Our Values

  • We are Christ-centered. We walk alongside our guests with the love and compassion Christ extends to us.
  • We are inclusive. We provide a safe and welcoming space, without discrimination, honoring each individual’s dignity and experience.
  • We pursue excellence. We strive for the highest level of integrity, innovation, and effectiveness in everything we do.
  • We are partners. We collaborate with community members, businesses, local governments, and faith communities to discover solutions that equip our beloved neighbors to thrive.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
