The day labor center proposed by Falls Church resident Greg Cox is now affiliated with Virginia Organizing, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that accepts grants and donations on its behalf.
“This is a big step forward in the plan to find a better solution for the day laborers that congregate at U-Haul/Staples, and a better solution for the homeowners/residents and businesses in Falls Church,” Cox wrote in an email to the News-Press.
The Falls Church Day Labor Center is now raising funds in order to open in summer 2017. Details on planning for the center and how members of the Falls Church community can help can be found on the center’s website. For more information, visit daylabor22046.org.
