Help for you, your family, your neighbors, your community.
The Department of Family Services cares about the safety and well-being of individuals and families, and is taking necessary actions to mitigate the risk of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) within the community. Therefore, our Financial and Medical Assistance lobbies at each of our locations (Fairfax, South County, Annandale, and Lake Anne) will be closed to walk-in visitors starting Friday, Mar. 20, 2020.
We will continue to provide public assistance services remotely and you are encouraged to request Assistance from a Distance to complete any needed interactions. There are multiple ways to request help or contact us without having to go into the office. The following methods are available to you in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and to support social distancing.
