Below are some select entities that are helping those in need
Northern Virginia Family Service NVFS provides services to the elderly and others who fall into high risk/vulnerable health categories, low-income families, those without adequate health insurance, families experiencing food insecurity, and the immigrant community. This grant will support services in Prince William, Fairfax, and Loudoun County, including support for NVFS’s Food Distribution Center that serves approximately 10,000 clients per year, their health access programs providing access to free or reduced-cost prescription medication and health care for 6,600 clients per year (including those who become ill with COVID-19), and their housing programs in Fairfax and Prince William that will help subsidize rent and other basic expenses.
Loudoun Hunger Relief Loudoun Hunger Relief provides fresh groceries for low income and other vulnerable Loudoun residents. Currently, they are providing up to 950 emergency food preparedness bags per day for Loudoun County Public School children, the elderly, and low-income households.
Their pantry provides emergency food assistance, including fresh produce, frozen meat, and dry goods. They currently report that demand is up 50% since the end of last week, while at the same time grocery store donations, which constitute 55% of the food they distribute, is down 44%.
ACTS of Prince William County ACTS of Prince William County provides a myriad of programs that address the needs of the elderly and low-income families in the county. Their Hunger Prevention Center has now expanded its hours of operation and its grocery delivery service to the homebound elderly and disabled to meet the increased demand, even while the capacity to meet that demand drops. They also offer emergency financial payments to avoid utility disconnections and have expanded their Senior Link program, provides more than 1,200 check-in wellness calls per month to this same population.
