Programs
 

CLOTHING
FCS provides clothing assistance through a voucher system. These vouchers allow the client to shop at participating area thrift stores. Vouchers are delivered to member congregations for distribution.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
FCS provides emergency funds to assist individuals and families in times of financial hardship. These funds are available for rent, utilities, and other special needs such as medicine and eyeglasses. Funds are dispensed directly to the service provider.

FOOD ASSISTANCE

Pantry
FCS maintains a food pantry at Knox Presbyterian Church which provides non-perishable and fresh food to clients in need. Food donations come from member congregations, individuals and local food drives. Additional critical food is purchased when needed as funds are available. Church volunteers bag and deliver a week's supply of food to clients. (Pantry Needs)

Meals on Wheels (MOW)
Volunteers deliver meals five days per week to homebound individuals who are unable to prepare or arrange food for themselves. AAA (Area Agency on Aging) refers individuals for this program. The FCS Meals on Wheels coordinator arranges for delivery of meals in Falls Church.

FURNITURE
Volunteers pick up donated furniture in the greater Falls Church area only then deliver it to families in the Falls Church area served by FCS. Furniture is stored until needed. Area social service agencies and member congregations refer clients to this program. Crews of volunteers delivery these household items on Saturdays. (Furniture Needs)
