NVFS’ 100 Years of Service Celebration

Celebrating our Collective Impact on Our Community and Our Neighbors

Thank you to all our guests and sponsors for making our 100 Years of Service Celebration a success! Help keep our 100-year commemoration going and support your community through the NVFS Fund for Families campaign.


In 2024, NVFS will commemorate an important milestone in our history – our 100th Year of Service to the Northern Virginia community. Whether it means offering families emergency food or housing, helping children get ready for kindergarten, connecting parents to stable jobs, or providing mental health counseling, NVFS works towards a future in which every person in our community has the access, support, and resources they need to reach their full potential.

We are thrilled to announce NVFS’ 100 Years of Service Celebration on Friday, May 3rd at The Torpedo Factory Art Center in the city of Alexandria, where our organization was founded in 1924. We look forward to gathering with you to celebrate this special milestone as well as the possibilities of our work together for the next hundred years.

Together, we will rededicate ourselves to building foundations that ensure that everyone in need, at every stage of life receives the resources and support they need to thrive. We recognize that together we can create a stronger and more vibrant community for everyone.

“Because of NVFS, we are able to build our family both with ‘forever’ children through adoption and ‘forever in our heart’ children through foster care. NVFS will always hold a special place in our hearts!”
– Mandi & Aaron Brown, NVFS Foster Care parents
