Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

WFCM Client Services and Client Choice Food Pantry

In FY 2022, $0.96 of each $1 spent went towards programs. Western Fairfax Christian Ministries was able to provide $4.6 million in rent and utility assistance, nearly 1 million pounds of food, and 427,000 diapers to 4,489 of our neighbors in Fairfax County. While a substantial amount of funding for rent assistance came from Fairfax County through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program, nearly $250,000 came from local businesses, congregations, organizations, and individuals which was critical in enabling us to serve families in western Fairfax County that did not qualify for the federal program and had emergency housing needs.
Throughout Fiscal Year 2022, we were able to expand and improve the services we delivered. We provided 5,116 appointments for clients to select food in our client-choice food pantry. We added satellite-site refrigerators ending the fiscal year with 7 (which has now grown to 14 as of calendar year-end 2022).
