Prince William County has a homeless problem.
About 400 people in the county live in shelters, or in wooded areas around major roadways and shopping centers.
As more development occurs in the county forcing some out of their tents in wooded encampments, the county’s government aims to do more to help the homeless get access to education, training, basic services, as well as work to prevent facing homelessness from going without a roof over their heads.
