The Human Services Council (HSC) is made up of 20 individuals appointed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors with the charge of: analyzing the needs and effectiveness of the Health and Human Services system; advising the system on annual and strategic goals and priorities; and serving as a liaison to governing and advisory boards of health and human service organizations and to the community on health and human service issues.

Community Engagement Sessions Front CoverIn early 2020, the Human Services Council convened community engagement meetings in the different human service regions to solicit feedback from Fairfax County’s residents on inequities in housing, childcare, transportation, health care and other services. Understanding these challenges, and how they influence health, housing and human services needs is critical in identifying gaps in services, coordinating efforts and aligning programs that create a thriving community for all residents. Findings from these community engagement sessions have been translated into eight different languages.
