I had a great time at Woodlawn Garden Apartments during their Community Day this past Saturday.

Thank you, Diana Rojas, Manager of Woodlawn Garden Apartments, Kristen Büchner, Community Health Specialist for the Fairfax County Health Department, Neighborhood Health, and Opportunity Neighborhood of Mount Vernon for putting together a wonderful event!

Executive Insights: Workforce Development in D.C., Prince George's County, Fairfax County and more - Washington Business Journal

"In the Lee District, we’re bringing opportunities to areas that have been devastated by COVID-19. Members of our Latinx and African-American communities, many of them along the Richmond Highway Corridor, are employed in retail-based businesses. If they’re lucky, they might get $12 or $13 an hour. The average income within the 22306 zip code is about $51,000. In Fairfax County, our average income is about $125,000 a year. We’ve been talking to the county about developing a Skills Employment Training Center. All the different trades in the D.C. metro area have agreed to provide free apprenticeships leading to full-time jobs paying at least $20 to $24 an hour. It’s part of the innovation hub that will be up and running at the beginning of 2022."

I'm honored to be featured in the Washington Business Journal's "Executive Insights" to discuss workforce development and the upcoming Lee District Innovation Hub.

In 2021, the Victim Services Division worked on over 350 cases involving child victims and witnesses of domestic & sexual violence. Many of these children will not get to celebrate holidays this year due to the financial burden that comes with being a victim of crime.

In the true spirit of the season, I ask you to please join us in brightening the holidays for our courageous children by participating in this drive. For some, the gift cards can be used to purchase toys and other gifts. For others, the gift cards will be used to purchase winter clothing for the children or to purchase food for their holiday meal.

Now through Friday, December 17, 2021, we are seeking gift cards for our child victims (both young and teenagers) to places like Giant, Safeway, Walmart, TJ Maxx, Target, Kohl’s, local restaurants, and clothing stores. Gift cards will allow parents to be active participants in purchasing gifts for each child and practical needed items that they would normally go without.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

You can drop off or mail gift cards to:

Saly Fayez
Director, Victim Services Division
Fairfax County Police Department
12099 Government Center Parkway
Fairfax, VA 22035

For more information, please contact:

Saturday's "Practice Police Interactions" event was a tremendous success! Thank you to all those who participated.

The police interaction sessions gave drivers who are differently-abled or live with a diagnosed developmental disability, their parents, and advocates the confidence to utilize their full independence and alleviate the unavoidable anxiety that has kept so many of them off the road.

Over 50 people signed up to attend a session at Franconia Fire Station 5.

Thanks again to The Arc of Northern Virginia, Fairfax County Police Department, and Ready Fairfax.

board of supervisors said there are no people waiting on the line, but have failed to provide the number to call in.
High School students are going back to their schools. Unfortunately, some of them won't go to college in the near future. But they still have a chance. Sign them up for ELP I now. Link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdmLsNoYYoxzx2GlnU3Ey4AP6miGEhE5OqTJCt__yk-kO9Ziw/viewform They can go to college with our support. Thanks for sharing!
Everyone needs a laugh. This is today's price at the gas station on backlick by Costco. Are the premium prices going up as the houses inflate? How.far can you drive on 2 gallons of premium. https://patch.com/virginia/kingstowne/attorney-general-accuses-springfield-gas-station-price-gouging
Here are some more cars. Hopefully there are enough spaces for those going back in tomorrow.
Fairfax county spends a ton of money on commuter parking that never seems like there is enough. Today I realized why. The sign says no commercial vehicles and commuter parking only. The backlick lot has a van with a jetski hogging 2 spots and half the cars expired months ago..car with a car cover been there since January. Moving truck registered in Maryland. DC Cab been here 5 months.
Yesterday evening the racers attacked VSP officers at the Horner Road lot. A lot of these racers are our neighbors and residents of this county. PW police announced they weren't going to send officers. Why is this continuing to be allowed? Vsp had to use shields and helmets as racers destroyed their cars. Pulled their antennas kicked cars tried to attack cops. Shameful.
Someone saw you on TV today.. we missed it. If you find the link online let us know. Congrats.
Their Delegate sponsored this law and helped write it and now they are going back to see see they can amend it because it did exactly what the people said it would do? Maybe the county can do the same?
This week is special. This week, today, tomorrow, you can support a student in need with his/her school supplies. Back to School brings them joy. You can support them and contribute to their happiness. With school supplies, fun and learn will be the best motivation for a kid. Please click on the link and select one of the kits. Thank you for supporting and sharing.
Saw this on nextdoor. I've reported this garbage when it was just the couch 2 months ago. This is disgusting
Why can't we do something besides a tax. Some of us can't afford more taxes. I copied a link below that is an article about how the community collects bags and with the bags the company Trex collects the bags and then in turn makes them a park bench. If we can work with Trex and would make benches all over the county. Maybe we could make them memorial benches.
At Edu-Futuro, we work hard to bring quality programming to the community, we take care of each other as a family, we value and respect each other, and we enjoy each other’s company while we know our students and families are getting the services they deserve from a dedicated team. Edu-Futuro has been a host site for AmeriCorps members since 2009, through grants managed by the state of Virginia, and has worked in different partnerships to bring AmeriCorps members to serve our Northern Virginia community. Currently, Edu-Futuro was chosen as one of only 12 lead agencies in the Commonwealth of Virginia for the National AmeriCorps Community Service Program. This major accomplishment represents a landmark moment in the development of Edu-Futuro, which has been an AmeriCorps sub-grantee for more than a decade. During the three-year agreement with the AmeriCorps State and Territory, The Commission will allow Edu-Futuro to increase the number of AmeriCorps members on our staff, from 5 to 19. Members of the Edu-Futuro AmeriCorps program serve at Edu-Futuro by facilitating leadership and college readiness workshops, mentoring middle and high school students, as well as providing meaningful programs and experiences for their parents. Edu-Futuro builds partnerships with local school systems and other non-profit organizations to provide college readiness skills and career preparation to the immigrant families in our community. Since 2011, the program has empowered over 2,100 K-12 students and parents from immigrant families in leadership training, college preparation, STEM activities, and parent engagement services. Please check the following flyer for information on how to apply and become part of the Edu-Futuro family this 2021-2022. Thank you for sharing! https://edu-futuro.org/join-our-team/#americorps
