Duesterhaus and Hankin were there at the beginning, two of the founders behind bringing the Shepherd's Center to Virginia, officially in 1997. Kirby says his goal "is to ring the Beltway with Shepherd's Centers." He's on his way. They have helped start up centers in Annandale/Springfield, Fairfax/Burke, and Mclean/Arlington/Falls Church.
