Unity of Fairfax's Spiritual Social Action Ministry provides opportunities for all to contribute to our community and our world.
Putting Feet to Our Prayers
Unity of Fairfax's outreach ministry, known as the Spiritual Social Action Committee (SSAC), provides opportunities for our congregation to contribute to domestic and international causes.
We are making a joyful difference in the world through expressions of commitment, generosity, and service.
We look forward to your participation with our team as we answer the call to assist those in need.
Our support for the following organizations and the general public comes in many forms: fundraising, delivering and serving meals to the homeless, and providing shoes, coats, and food donations.

DC Young Adult Faith Leaders Summit
On February 9, 2013, a diverse group of emerging leaders from religious communities throughout the Washington DC area gathered for the first-ever DC Young Adult Faith Leaders Summit. The event was organized by Faith in Action DC and hosted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Friendship Heights/Chevy Chase. Jackie Fuller represented Unity of Fairfax.

Our Daily Bread (ODB)
Even in one of the most prosperous counties in the United States, hunger is a persistent and growing reality for many people. In Fairfax County, nearly 70,000 people do not know where their next meal is coming from.
Hypothermia Prevention Program
The Hypothermia Prevention Program, sponsored by Reston Interfaith, is a program that provides a drop-in shelter and meals for approximately 30 homeless adults from December 1st to March 30th each year. We provide and serve dinner, and we provide breakfast and bag lunches for the next day. Volunteers are needed to make and serve the dinner and to purchase breakfast items, food, and materials to make the bag lunches. We need 8-10 cooks to make enough to feed 30 hungry people.
Though this winter is behind us, Unity of Fairfax continues to support the Reston Hypothermia Prevention Program. Anyone who is interested in taking part in this project, please contact Jackie Fuller or Laurie Warhol:School Mentors
Unity of Fairfax and Sunrise Valley Elementary school are partnering to provide mentors to students in grades K – 6 who could benefit from having a caring relationship with an adult. The student’s teacher provides all needed materials. Day of the week and time are determined by the schedule and availability of the mentor. If you have questions, please contact Beth English, email@example.com, 703-715-3800.
