Every time someone engages in service, they not only enrich their own lives but also help Volunteer Fairfax achieve its mission of meeting community needs. Beneficiaries of volunteers may include a teen who has a strong mentor, those hungry and homeless who are fed and sheltered, and animals who are found forever homes. We are proud to be part of the impact on the community. View the 2018-2019 Annual Impact Report here.
