We all share three basic needs: food, clothing, and shelter. Offering crisis intervention services throughout western Fairfax County, WFCM ensures that low-income families have the help they need to maintain self-sufficiency. Through an Emergency Financial Services program, they can receive assistance with rental and utility bills once per year; at the Food Pantry, they can make monthly appointments to select groceries in a store-like environment. WFCM provides backpacks to students in the fall, food baskets to families during the holidays, transportation to medical appointments, and furniture for the home. And for several families each year, long-term financial mentoring and budget training (coupled with monetary assistance to pay down debts) sets the course for a more self-sufficient life. Last year, 2,700 families came to WFCM for food, clothing, and shelter. You can ensure that every family has the essentials to live and to grow.
