Fairfax County Human Services and the Giving Circle of HOPE hosted three free programs. Each covered human service needs in the community discovered during the County’s recent study. Going deeper, each program highlighted which resources are missing to help struggling residents.
Fairfax County has an abundance of individuals with the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to ease many of these struggles. Collectively, we can invest our time and resources to achieve greater success more quickly for those in our community.
