Northern Virginia Family Services

Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS) provides on-ramps to opportunity, teaches and bolsters skills to foster prosperity, and believes that every family, child and individual should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential. The needs of Northern Virginia are great, and they are oftentimes hidden. 85,000 children in Northern Virginia live in poverty and 1 out of every 15 people is at risk of hunger. Each year, NVFS serves more approximately 10,000 individuals in the Greater Prince William Area through a variety of programs, including health and hunger, workforce development and housing and homelessness. A cornerstone of our comprehensive approach to meeting our client’s needs, our SERVE Campus in the Manassas provides access to multiple services in one succinct location, including a 92-bed shelter, Hunger Resource Center, Early Head Start classroom and Healthy Families program. NVFS works to address the challenges of systemic poverty on the community, and how these challenges affect families. Each day we give women, men and children the tools they need to thrive, not just survive.
