Veterans in Need
- Mental health, healthcare and other resources designed for veterans and their families.
- The General District Court provides the Veterans Treatment Docket, a voluntary, court-supervised treatment program to help veterans who have been arrested and have substance use issues and/or have other diagnosed mental health conditions.
- Every day, dozens of veterans are experiencing homelessness in our county. We work closely with our community partners, including nonprofits and faith organizations, to provide housing and support services.
Medical Foster Homes give veterans an alternative to a traditional nursing home care setting, offering a smaller, community-based, family setting in a safe environment.
We honor veterans and military personnel every day, but most especially in November and on Veterans Day. Visit Fairfax has compiled a list of events in Fairfax County, neighboring counties, D.C. and elsewhere to honor our vets.
The National Museum of the United States Army in Fort Belvoir provides a comprehensive portrayal of Army history and traditions through the eyes of the American soldier.
Purple Star Schools
Eighteen Fairfax County Public Schools have been recognized by the Virginia Department of Education and the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children as 2023 Purple Star Schools.
The Purple Star designation is awarded to military-friendly schools that have demonstrated their commitment to meeting the needs of military-connected students and their families.
