Great and noble cause in theory, but there is no homeless problem in Reston except for the influx that exists BECAUSE of the placement of the Embry Rucker shelter next to our library .

First of all, Reston Interfaith helps people all over Fairfax County. Second of all, homeless people are not only at the shelter. All homeless people don't fit into a neat little definition. Often they are sleeping on couches and floors of friends and family.
