NVFS and HealthWorks Combine Resources and Put Health First


Many in our region who are uninsured and struggling to pay bills are often faced with making a decision between critical medications, and other basic needs such as putting a roof over their children’s heads and food on the table. When health is secondary, the overall stability and well-being of the family’s foundation is weakened.

Since 2007, NVFS and HealthWorks of Northern Virginia have partnered to strengthen these foundations. NVFS’ Prescription Access Program (PAP) has provided uninsured families visiting HealthWorks of Northern Virginia with access to free or reduced-cost prescriptions, so they don’t have to make the tough decisions between rent and their health.

The need for HealthWorks’ services has continued to grow, and so has the partnership. Two specialists now serve both HealthWorks’ locations in Leesburg and Herndon to help keep clients throughout the community healthy. One specialist also devotes on day a week to the Loudoun County Community Services Board with an intentional focus on mental health prescriptions.

Thank you, HealthWorks of Northern Virginia!
