Serving Our Neighbors

Serving our Neighbors

Emmanuel partners closely with several local non-profits to provide funding, volunteer support, and in-kind donations to individuals and families whose living situation is “on the edge”. We focus on three areas for local support:

  • Homelessness
  • Struggling Singles and Families
  • Housing

FACETS supports parents, their children and individuals who suffer the effects of poverty – so often unnoticed – in Fairfax County.

Emmanuel volunteers prepare and deliver approximately 150 meals twice a month to homeless singles and families, manage food drives throughout the year, collect school supplies in the summer and Christmas gifts in late fall.  We also support the Hypothermia Prevention Program one week each year and have a Client Assistance Fund that is used to meet specific client needs.
