Community Engagement

From our beginning in 1960, Fellowship Square Foundation has been an organization concerned with community. Our founder, Rev. John Scherzer, wanted to ensure that the low income and elderly would find safe and affordable housing. Realizing that vision was the beginning of our partnerships with community organizations, local municipalities and corporate leaders. Finding land in Reston and funding through HUD would only be the beginning of a working with corporate leaders, religious communities and local municipalities to bring about the unique partnerships that has made a difference.

Today Fellowship Square partners come from all segments of our community. Federal, state, and local governments have both supported the work of Fellowship Square financially and have turned to the organization to address the concerns of some of the neediest segments of our community: the disabled and elderly. Corporations and foundations lend backing to our resident services. Friends, neighbors, concerned citizens, and faith communities add their support by freely giving their time, talent and treasure.

Every single partner is important to Fellowship Square, for their support is leveraged not in mere dollars, but in the lives of our residents.
