Last April, about 240 Fairfax County residents each day sought emergency assistance from the County. Last week that number was over 600. Families making minimum wage have been the hardest hit by the impact of the coronavirus, with hours shortened and loss of available daycare. These are parents who don’t receive healthcare benefits at work. Family PASS has been averaging 8-10 requests per week for emergency assistance compared with 2-3 a month last year.
