Connect Loudoun Online Survey – Human Services Strategic Plan
Connect Loudoun Online SurveySeeking Input for Loudoun County’s Human Services Strategic Plan

The Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties is partnering with Loudoun County and local nonprofit organizations to develop a five-year human services strategic plan for the county, which will provide a roadmap for implementing improved, coordinated systems of care that meet the human service needs of Loudoun County.

The strategic plan will focus on services such as affordable health care, child care and housing as well as funding and advocacy. The plan is being developed through a collaborative effort by the Loudoun County government, the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties and the Loudoun Human Services Network. Representatives of these groups are serving on the Human Services Strategic Plan Steering Committee, which is developing the strategic plan.

As part of this effort, members of the Loudoun community are invited to complete an online survey to provide input on how to improve human services.  This survey is available at:

Loudoun County Human Services Strategic Plan community meeting on February, 8 2019.

In addition, members of the public are invited to participate in a series of community meetings to give their feedback on how to improve Loudoun’s human services.  The first series of community meetings was held on February 8, 2019.  One hundred community members participated in facilitated discussions addressing human services needs across the County.  Another series of community meetings will be held on March 29, 2019.  Details for the upcoming series of community meetings will be finalized soon. If you are interested in receiving notifications about the upcoming community meetings, please email nicole@communityfoundationlf.org.

  1. The southern end of Loudoun County has grown exponentially over the past two decades and growth continues at a rapid pace. The Human Services Strategic Plan should recognize that the Route 50 corridor is not well served by the County and plan accordingly. Loudoun has population centers that are not along Route 7. It is time to open an office in southern Loudoun County or at least offer mobile service on a regular basis at the Dulles South Recreation and Community Center. I helped to found the Dulles South Food Pantry in 2014, and served as its President from 2014-2018, because I saw that our community’s needs were not being met by existing food pantries. Needs remain unmet in other Human Services areas.

        • Hello Susan, the survey closed on February 22 which is why it is no longer available on the website. However, we are getting ready to host a series of public meetings to get additional input, and we’ll announce the meeting dates and locations on the Connect Loudoun website as well as on this site. We hope you can join us for one of those meetings!
