Herndon UMC is again participating in the North County Hypothermia Prevention (NCHP) Program which is operated by Cornerstones in Reston. It is one of four hypothermia prevention sites in Fairfax County that serves a hot meal and offers a warm shelter every night for 30 men or women from December 1 through March 31, regardless of the temperature, preventing weather-induced illness and loss of life among unsheltered homeless men and women in our community.

Our Neighbors in Need Ministry prides itself in providing well balanced, healthy, warm meals for those in need. Our dinners this year are

  • Sundays, December 3 & 17
  • Mondays, January 15, February 5 & 26; and
  • Monday, March 19.

Your help is needed in a variety of ways - from supplying the ingredients, cooking the meals and then serving the meals at the shelter. Below you will find a list of the needs for each of the dinners. It is critical that the ingredients are at the church when they are needed as we need time to slice/dice, cook, pack up and then get it there to serve.  There is an online sign up on SignUpGenius, or you may contact Becky Field-Ross at This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you see someone who is unsheltered and may need hypothermia prevention help, please call 703-691-2131. FCPS has six emergency shelters with added capacity in the winter, and Fairfax County has dozens of faith communities who also help provide shelter all winter long.
