Department of Family Services' Divisions

Our programs and services are provided in regional offices and community sites throughout the County. 

The services provided by DFS provide the framework for a strong and resilient Fairfax County: safe communities, a thriving economy, excellent schools, and opportunities for everyone to feel connected and engaged. DFS focuses on:

  • safety for children, older adults, and victims of domestic and sexual violence;
  • public assistance benefits, employment training, and affordable child care to close income gaps and enable people to become economically secure;
  • high quality early childhood education and child development-focused parent education classes to ensure school readiness and lifelong learning success; and
  • supportive programs that build on the strengths of families, children, people with disabilities and older adults so they can thrive.
