Engage With the CSB Developmental Disabilities Team This Summer

Photo of workers at Cameron's ChocolatesJoin the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB), partner organizations, family and friends to help craft future services and supports for adults living with developmental disabilities in Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church. You have an opportunity to make a difference!

The CSB developmental disabilities staff currently provides employment assistance and training to over 1,300 people; services that help people enter and remain in the workforce or in meaningful day activities. Employment or a meaningful day activity is an important part of life, helping to add fulfillment, inclusion, economic self-determination, and identity to a person’s life. Demands for CSB’s high quality employment and day services are growing and we’re searching for a way to continue to meet the needs of our community.

We need your ideas on how to provide various levels of service, for the greatest number of people, while containing costs. There are several opportunities this summer for you to voice ideas, inform priorities, propose solutions and create meaningful change:

  • Attend a Kick Off on Thursday, July 6, at 6:30 p.m. at the Fairfax County Government Center, Rooms 4-5 to learn more about CSB's summer of engagement. Learn more about the online idea bank, a series of workshops and opportunities to get involved and share your ideas.
  • Join CSB at one of four hands-on Resource Challenge Workshops. Attendees will participate in a facilitated challenge to create workable decision-making models that reflect the community’s values in how tax resources are used to provide the greatest number of people with employment supports and day programs. Advance registration is requested but not required. Dates and locations are:
