Engage With the Community Services Board’s Developmental Disabilities Team This Summer

Join the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB), partner organizations, family and friends to help craft future services and supports for adults living with developmental disabilities in Fairfax County. You have an opportunity to make a difference!  They need your ideas on how to provide various levels of service, for the greatest number of people, while containing costs. There are several unique opportunities to voice ideas, inform priorities, propose solutions and create meaningful change this summer.

The CSB developmental disabilities staff currently provides employment assistance and training to over 1,300 people; services that help people enter and remain in the workforce. Employment or a meaningful day activity is an important part of everyone’s life, helping to add fulfillment, inclusion, economic self-determination, and identity to a person’s life. Demands for CSB’s high quality employment and day services are growing and we’re searching for a way to continue to meet the needs of our community.

Employment and meaningful day activities are crucial parts of life. Please get involved and help all people in Fairfax County live their best lives.
