Loudoun Serenity House

Loudoun Serenity House was established in 2018 in order to provide safe, supportive, and affordable service to help people strive for their best substance-free life. The organization provides the tools necessary for newly sober people to rebuild and repair the damage caused by addition in their personal and professional lives.

Loudoun Serenity House is Loudoun’s first—and only—sober-living residence and is dedicated to supporting people in the most difficult time in their early recovery through hope, empowerment, mentorship, resources, and so much more.


McLean Community Foundation

McLean Community Foundation supports the McLean community with financial aid in all sectors of life: including but not limited to education, elder care, public safety, the environment, health care, parks, and the arts. The impact of MCF can be witnessed everywhere you look across the region.

McLean Community Foundation has been in operation since 1980, with predecessor organizations establishes as early as 1914. Forty years after its first grant to the McLean Volunteer Fire Department, the foundation has given more than $1,750,000 in grants to non-profits supporting the residents of McLean.


Food for Others

Food for Others, founded in 1995, distributes food to neighbors in need through its network of volunteers and giving community. Staff and volunteers pick up good food that would otherwise go to waste from local grocery stores and other retail food establishments and connect it to families who are struggling to make ends meet.

Major programs include food distribution directly from their Merrifield warehouse, neighborhood sites throughout Fairfax County, the Power Pack Program providing weekend backpack food to students, a food bank for their community partners, and a Farm to Family program. Twenty-five years into operation, Food for Others now feeds more than 2,600 families per week.
