SERVE Campus

Programs designed to address all aspects of well-being

The SERVE campus houses a variety of programs that help our neighbors receive the immediate assistance they need, such as food and shelter, and develop the potential for future success, including rapid re-housing, health access and services for children. SERVE has been part of the Greater Prince William community since 1975 and merged with NVFS in 2009.

Family Shelter & Housing Programs:
With 92 beds, the SERVE Family Shelter is Northern Virginia’s largest family homeless shelter; more than 40 percent of the residents are children. NVFS also helps families and individuals with housing and homelessness prevention, including rent and utility assistance to avoid evictions and disconnections.

Food Assistance:
The 8,000-square-foot Hunger Resource Center (HRC) serves more than 600 families per month, and nearly 9,000 unique individuals per year, with food and essentials. The HRC also houses NVFS’ Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) outreach and nutritional education programs to ensure families are educated on and able to afford healthy food.

Youth Services:
Healthy Families and Early Head Start foster learning and development in young children and provide their parents with the tools to continue this growth. In addition to an on-site Early Head Start classroom, two home-based programs help 67 families build strong parenting skills and ensure children are healthy and meet developmental milestones.

Health Access:
NVFS’ health access programs connect children and adults with free or reduced-cost medical and dental care, as well as prescription medications. Access to appropriate health care ensures families and individuals maintain good health, which improves their overall well-being and self-confidence.
