News and Information

NCS and CERT donations

November 18, 2020
In October, NCS and the Office for Children teamed up with the Community Emergency Response Team to distribute tissues, toilet paper, disinfectant spray, paper towels and other cleaning products to child care providers.  The distribution took place October 13-15 at Lincolnia Senior Center in Alexandria. Volunteers distributed 37 pallets of supplies. Hadyn Kihm, NCS Volunteer Coordinator, noted that the project required the teamwork of many groups within NCS, including OFC, Facilities and the Region 2 staff. CERT’s involvement was also key to the project’s success. CERT is a partnership between the Federal and Fairfax County Governments and is managed by the Fire and Rescue Department. The program engages citizens in making their community safer, more prepared, and more resilient when incidents occur. Hadyn said, “Having worked with CERT on multiple food distribution drives, I could see how their logistical expertise would be useful in planning this drive. We knew it was going to be a big job, but it was bigger even than we knew!” CERT project leader James Sobecke designed the supply kits and offered expertise on how to distribute them. Based on his recommendations, NCS Region 2 Operations Manager Norma Lopez mobilized nearly a dozen Region 2 staff members to help assemble the supply kits, along with additional volunteers. Of the CERT team, Hadyn said, “James and his team arrived early, worked late, and brought their tools and skills to bear on what was a new type of distribution for all of us.” Elizabeth White, Park/Recreation Assistant at Lincolnia Senior Center, added, “James has a full handle on what is going on here – what a gem!”

Artist's Rendering of the Sully Community Center

October 22, 2020
Construction on the new Sully Community Center in Chantilly is underway! Watch this video to get an update on construction as well as the services and features of the facility. The 36,000-square-foot Sully Community Center will serve as a multi-generational facility for the surrounding communities. It is being constructed on approximately 5 acres at the intersection of Wall Road and the Air and Space Museum Parkway in Chantilly, Va. Once completed, it will serve as the new home of the Sully Senior Center (currently operating in leased space in Chantilly), as well as provide a broader array of services, programs and activities for individuals of all ages and abilities. The project is scheduled for completion in 2022. For additional information, visit the Sully Community Center webpage .

A graphic that says Your input is needed.  Take the Community Funding Pool Categories Survey!

October 14, 2020
Fairfax County’s Consolidated Community Funding Pool is an allocation of funds earmarked by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors to be administered to local nonprofits and community-based organizations as an investment in programs and services that strengthen the county’s ability to fill the human services needs of its residents. To determine how these funds should be allocated, Fairfax County, with significant community input, establishes categories that are reflective of the needs residents feel are most important in their communities. In preparation for the next funding cycle, we are seeking your insight on our current category areas: Financial Stability Food and Nutrition Health Housing Literacy/Educational Development/Attainment Positive Behaviors and Healthy Relationships Support/Community/Social Networks As we gather feedback from the community, your input is important. Please take a moment to share your thoughts and opinions by taking the Community Feedback Survey online . The survey will be available until Friday, October 30, 2020. All responses will be anonymous.
