    About

    Over 1 million people call Fairfax County home. The median income is over $100,000 but deep pockets of poverty mean great need. Last year, the Fairfax Corps served over 12,000 people, the second largest in the National Capital region. Thousands came for food, clothing and heating bills during the harsh winter, and for back-to-school supplies and Angel tree gifts as the holidays rolled around. And when it all got too much, staff were on hand with a listening ear and a heartfelt prayer. Living in poverty is a constant battle. But in Fairfax County, struggling families know they have the Army on their side.

    Twice a week, throughout the school year, 50 children are picked up from school and brought to the Fairfax Corps for this free program. While mom and dad work to make ends meet, the kids get ahead on their homework in the newly upgraded computer lab. The lab has ten new computers, a new library space and an all-purpose area thanks to a $25,000 Target School Library Makeover last year. Every week, budding musicians are also given free instruction from professionals who volunteer their time to the Gospel Arts Program to teach the children piano, brass instruments, singing and drama lessons.
