Fairfax Church's Resource Center is designed to support professionals working both inside and outside the scope of their job responsibilities to provide emergency resources to vulnerable families.

If you are a professional connected directly with vulnerable families in our community, then we are here to extend our support through access to emergency resources. To place a request for resources, please register below. If you have any other questions, please contact us at resourcecenter@fairfax.cc.

Who are the professionals?

“Professional” is a broad definition for those in our community who work directly with families in crisis. This may include school and county social workers, teachers, police officers, parole counselors, the health department, counselors, doctors, nurses, among so many others. Professionals are working directly with people in emergency circumstances to help families maintain a sustainable living.

During the pandemic, we were inspired by so many professionals who were working outside the scope of their required job responsibilities to help families in crisis We heard so many stories, from teachers buying groceries and dropping them off at students’ homes to counselors shopping on Christmas Eve, that we wanted to share the wealth of the financial burden to support professionals caring for these families.  

What are the resources?

The resources in our center are meant for emergency purposes and not as ongoing support services for families. The Northern Virginia area has numerous social service agencies and opportunities for families to get connected with professionals who can help. It is important for families to connect to these services so that they can work with a professional toward sustainability. Resources include non-perishable food, diapers, hygiene items, and cleaning supplies. 

How does this work?

Let’s jump right to it.  We are so excited to work with you!
First, we ask that all professionals register one time with us through the request form. We will use your cell phone number to connect you to all subsequent requests. 
 
We will ask you for your professional name, professional email, agency, and cell phone.
 
Second, through the request form, we’ll ask for generic information about the family so we can pull together enough resources for the size and age range of the family. Next, we will ask you to let us know your availability to pick up the resources. All of these details will be confirmed over email before you arrive. Please make sure you receive this email before coming to the Resource Center.

Does Fairfax deliver the resources to the family?

No.We recognize that professionals hold relationship and trust with families, but not necessarily the budget to support all of their clientsWe believe that providing professionals with emergency resources relieves some of the stress so that you can better serve families toward sustainability. Therefore, we prefer that you pick up from our center which is open Sunday through Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm and Saturdays 4:00pm – 6:00pm, by appointment. We can make arrangements for a delivery to be made to you per request in our form.
