About Us

The Mission of FHN: to make homelessness in the Rappahannock-Rapidan region rare, brief, and nonrecurring. 

What is FHN?

The Foothills Housing Network (FHN) is a partnership of organizations working to prevent and end homelessness within the Rappahannock-Rapidan Region, which is comprised of the counties of Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, and Rappahannock.

How does FHN fit into Virginia?

FHN is responsible for planning and implementing the regional homeless services system, which connects those experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness to the providers best suited to meet their needs. Funded in part by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), FHN is the Local Planning Group of the Virginia Balance of State Continuum of Care (CoC).
