Mission and Purpose
 

The Falls Church Community Service Council, Inc. (FCS), established in 1969, is a coalition of churches and human service organizations in the greater Falls Church area.

The purpose of the FCS organization is to provide needed human services to poor and disadvantaged individuals and families in the Falls Church community. The assistance primarily is for short term and emergency needs with the overall mission of helping individuals and families achieve self sufficiency, an improved quality of life and avoid homelessness.


CROP Walk
FCS successfully sponsored a CROP Walk for hunger relief on Sunday, November 10, 2013. About 12 church congregations were represented and approximately 180 participants walked the 2.7 mile course along Graham Road in Falls Church. The Walk raised $13,590.00 for hunger relief, 25% of which will go towards the FCS Food Pantry, which delivers groceries to local families in need. FCS is grateful for all the support it received from the community. Thanks to the Lee-Graham Swim Club for use of their parking area and to the Super A grocery store for donating snacks and water for all participants. Planning is underway for the 2014 CROP Walk scheduled for Sunday, October 26.
