Employee Voices

NVFS tirelessly serves not only Northern Virginia families and individuals in need, but also the very people who support those families and individuals: NVFS employees. An emphasis on the FISH! Philosophy, which encourages employees to creatively brighten each other’s days, as well as a diversity of cultures, makes NVFS a welcoming agency for everyone, every day.

NVFS is passionate about making a difference in the community, and that’s a part of the agency fabric exactly because of our employees. Being excited to come to work translates to great things for staff – and the families that they help every day, too!
