About the Human Services Resource Guide

The Human Services Resource Guide, aka, the HSRG, is a searchable database that contains information on thousands of nonprofit and government services available to Fairfax County residents. Anyone with an Internet connection has 24/7 access to the HSRG, including from mobile devices.

The primary focus of the database is on human services programs for low-income residents and those in need and the bulk of the information is about programs, including detailed service descriptions, eligibility, locations (maps and directions), and contact information.
