Community Services Board
The same name – "Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board" (CSB) – refers to both:
- The local agency that provides services for people in Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church who have mental illness, substance use disorders, and/or intellectual or developmental disabilities.
- The 16-member administrative policy board that oversees the establishment and operation of these local services.
The CSB administrative policy board, which we refer to as the "CSB Board," normally meets at 5 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Merrifield Center, 8221 Willow Oaks Corporate Drive, Fairfax. For more information about the Board:
- See the Board meeting schedule for the current month.

- See the Board's annual planning calendar.
