Community Development 

Helping the Unhoused
Our Missions Team and members work close with the Hypothermia Prevention Shelter and Embry Rucker Community Shelter to provide assistance to the unhoused in our community. There are various volunteer activities throughout the year to be involved with the shelter located in Reston.

Providing Financial Resources
We work closely with Herndon-Reston FISH in supporting efforts to provide local residents with access to resources to help them be financially stable.

Supporting our Local Thrift Shop
We recruit volunteers to serve at The Closet to sort, label and price gently used toys and household items.


School Partnership

Lake Anne Elementary School
We are committed to maintaining a strong relationship with the students and faculty at Lake Anne Elementary School. Homework Club is an after-school tutoring program in which volunteers assist students with their homework. Keeping the safety our community is a priority, so this season we are supporting Lake Anne through school supply donations and our Youth are serving as mentors.
