In-Home ServicesIn Home Services

The Companion Program provides in-home assistance for low-income adults over the age of 60 and/or who have severe disabilities that prevent them from performing these tasks independently. Depending on the needs of the individual, companions can assist with:

  • Light housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Light meal preparation
  • Grocery shopping

Individuals must meet income guidelines.  Individual income must be below $1,952 per month and household income for a family of two must be below $2,553 per month to qualify for this service. There may be a waiting list.

To apply, call 703.746.5999, option 1, to speak to the on-call worker.  A family services specialist will arrange to make a home visit for a detailed assessment of the applicant's capabilities.

CareRing Services is a free daily telephone calling program designed to help individuals who are living alone, aged, disabled or chronically ill maintain their independence and maintain connection to the community.
