Thank you for your dedication to our Northern Virginia community. We are excited to announce that our gala is sold out. We invite you to visit our donate page to help ensure that our neighbors continue to receive the support they need to thrive.

The 2023 Road to Independence Gala will take place on Friday, May 5th at The Pavilions at Wolf Trap. We look forward to gathering with you in our outdoor venue to connect and celebrate the incredible achievements and possibilities of our work together in the community.

At the Road to Independence Gala, we will highlight the resiliency of the families we work with every day. We will celebrate how they build the foundations for healthy, successful futures through their hope, hard work, confidence, and the support of NVFS, and our donors, partners, and volunteers. We will reflect on how these individual transformations create ripples throughout Northern Virginia, spreading well-being, opportunities, and building prosperity for our community.

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
