“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle The Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB) provides services for people of all ages who have mental illness, substance use disorders, and/or developmental disabilities to help them to build and live their best lives. Every day, CSB employees and partners commit themselves to provide excellent services to individuals in our community. Many go above and beyond in meaningful and unforgettable ways. The CSB’s Spirit of Excellence Awards, which are not exclusively for CSB staff, recognize these individuals for their enduring actions. CSB employees also provide valuable contributions through single, random acts of kindness. The CSB Spirit of Excellence Random Act of Kindness Award, which is new for 2019, will honor a CSB employee who makes a deliberate, one-time contribution to the CSB and the clients we serve. This year’s CSB Spirit of Excellence Award Team is now seeking nominations for all-stars (or teams of all-stars) whose outstanding performance, attitude, and actions promote, reinforce, or embody the CSB’s mission, vision and values. Do you know an extraordinary individual or team that embodied excellence and superior performance in the services they provided in the past year? Please consider nominating that individual or team for a Spirit of Excellence Award. Any member of the community is eligible to be nominated. Since July 2007, CSB employees and others have been recognized for excellence by colleagues and community members. Nominations will be accepted between December 1, 2018 and January 31, 2019. Get more information about the Spirit of Excellence Award or fill out the nomination form.

Join the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB), the Welcoming Inclusion Network (WIN) the Fairfax County Special Education PTA (SEPTA) and community partners for a screening of “Intelligent Lives” on Monday, December 10, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. at Robinson Secondary School Recital Hall, 5053 Sideburn Road, Fairfax. Following the screening, a panel of local representatives will discuss post-secondary transitions for students with special needs in the Fairfax County and the Cities of Falls Church and Fairfax. “Intelligent Lives” is a film that highlights, and attempts to transform, the label of “intellectual disability” and challenges the viewer to examine how we can all work to change lives lived in isolation into lives of possibility. “Intelligent Lives” stars three young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer and Naomie – who defy perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college and the workforce. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film examines and challenges the continuing practice of intelligence testing in the U.S. “Intelligent Lives” also challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment and intimate relationships. Register for free tickets. In addition to the screening and the panel, attendees can talk with representatives from the CSB, WIN, SEPTA, the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services, ServiceSource, George Mason University Disability Services, The Arc of Northern Virginia, Fairfax County Public Schools' Career and Transition Services, and Brandon Cassady, a graduate of FCPS and Purdue University.
