Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS) dedicates its time and efforts to ensuring every individual and family in need in the Northern Virginia community receives the services and assistance they need in order to thrive. One of the most rewarding aspects about supporting and empowering those in our community is partnering with other organizations whose beliefs reflect and support our own. Booz Allen Hamilton is a proud supporter of NVFS, providing its time, talent and funds to support our organization through our events and specific programs, such as Training Futures.
