The FISH Mission

  • To help Herndon and Reston residents cope with short-term financial crises by providing Friendly Instant Sympathetic Help.

  • We help stabilize lives by preventing an eviction, keeping utilities from being turned off, and helping to finance immediate medical needs.

Holiday  Food and Gift Program a Success

Once again this year FISH provided food and children's gifts to needy families. This effort allowed us to:

  • feed 235 families in need 

  • distribute nearly 3,500 pounds of non-perishable food

  • distribute about $5,000 in grocery gift cards for fresh food

  • provide 500 holiday gifts to children

We could not have done this without the generous help of many people. We would specifically like to thank all the volunteers, Board and staff members, and businesses who helped to make the Holiday Food & Gift Program so successful.
