Executive Director’s Message

A Message from our Executive Director

Family PASS offers a helping hand to families in need

Even though Fairfax County is one of the wealthiest counties in America, we have a significant percentage of our population that falls below the poverty level. They are the working poor, often working two or more jobs to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table for their families. However, just one crisis, unexpected car repair, or loss of income can push them to the brink of homelessness.

These are the people that Family PASS supports. Our goal is to help families stay together, avoid eviction, and work towards ending the cycle of chronic financial stress and housing instability.

When families enter our Self- Sufficiency Program, they work with a dedicated case manager who helps them set goals to deal with their immediate financial crisis and then encourages additional education or technical training so they can earn a living wage and support their family on their own.  

We hope you will join us in our vision to strengthen at-risk families in Fairfax County and end homelessness in our community.  


With gratitude,

Ann McNerney
Interim Executive Director
