During the current emergency, Volunteer Fairfax, in collaboration with the other members of the Metro Coalition of Volunteer Centers requests that all prospective volunteers contact their local volunteer center by phone or website, or call 1-800-VOLUNTEER, to be connected to the volunteer center nearest where you live. Please do not go to the scene of the disaster since that could slow you down or hinder rescue operations. We urge everyone to attend to the needs of your families and neighbors first and follow instructions of your local emergency management agency.

Stories for 40 Years—In Celebration of Volunteer Fairfax’s
40th Anniversary of Serving the Community

The House that Miss Ambler Built
Bungalow smallIf you have driven by the Fairfax County Courthouse, you may have seen our office.  But, maybe not… it is easy to miss the small house in the middle of this busy section of Fairfax.  Across from the courthouse there stands a small grey house with red shutters.  It is the home of Volunteer Fairfax.  First-time visitors and passersby are often intrigued when they enter the building… intrigued by its age and, ah charm.   So we thought we would tell its story.  We gratefully acknowledge the kind assistance of several super-sleuths who helped us uncover historical facts including Maryan Smith, Jenee Lindner, Lee and Joan Hubbard, and Lynne Garvey Hodge.

40 Years of Impact!

On May 6, our 40th anniversary year concludes. 
We have enjoyed celebrating with you through service,
welcoming you at events, sharing stories
through the VF Stories Project and
even put together a video!




Help us launch into the next 40 years of service.
