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.
