Operation Safe Haven
The federal government has entered into a contractual agreement with the NCC in Lansdowne to use the center as a “safe haven” to temporarily house Afghan evacuees as part of Operation Allies Welcome. The site will function as a brief stop for thousands of Afghan evacuees until they are resettled into new homes located throughout the United States. The operation is scheduled to begin during the week of March 7 and end no later than September 2022.
A detailed explanation about the “safe haven” facility, and a link to the online form to submit questions, may be found at loudoun.gov/safehaven.
