About the Gala
“At the Road to Independence Gala, we celebrate the impact NVFS, with the support of our donors, partners and volunteers, has on our community. This year’s Gala highlighted the transformation we see in the people we work with every day: the challenges they are able to overcome, the opportunities they discover, and how their entire outlook changes to reflect newfound hope and confidence. These transformations ripple through the community as we see Northern Virginia become a better place in which all of our neighbors can thrive.” – Northern Virginia Family Service
