Fairfax Corps

Over 1 million people call Fairfax County home. Though the median income is over $100,000, deep pockets of poverty exist along with great need. The Salvation Army Fairfax serves thousands of people each year in the National Capital Region. They offer assistance with food, clothing, and heating bills during the harsh winter, and for back-to-school supplies and Angel tree gifts as the holidays rolled around. Living in poverty is a constant battle. However, in Fairfax County, struggling families know they have the Army on their side.

Throughout the school year, 50 children are picked up from school (twice a week) and brought to the Corps for free youth programs. Kids work to get ahead on their homework or read in the library, or simply have fun in an all-purpose area. Aspiring musicians receive free instruction from professionals who volunteer their time through the Gospel Arts Program.
