Outstanding mission to serve low-income seniors in Fairfax, Prince William and Prince George's Counties. Fellowship Square has a wonderful staff and property management. This nonprofit invests a lot of resources in providing quality services and programs for their residents in addition to advocating for more affordable housing for our seniors. Upcoming new construction and renovation projects will greatly benefit the residents and surrounding community.

I was drawn to this organization because shelter is one of life's basic needs for survival. We have many older Americans that have worked their entire lives and still don't have enough income in retirement to live, not just shelter to survive but a loving supporting home to thrive in. This is that Organization! They provide a wonderful environment so people may Thrive!

Fellowship Square is a faith-based, not-for-profit organization that serves seniors by providing low-income affordable housing. The locally based organization raises money to enrich the lives of its residents, improve the HUD-supported housing they sponsor and expand the number of affordable senior housing units available in the area. Affordable, appropriate housing for seniors is in short supply in the Washington DC area. Fellowship Square is the leading locally-based not-for-profit organization addressing this need.

Fellowship Square Foundation provides high quality affordable housing opportunities for low income senior citizens in Maryland and Virginia. The mission of the organization and more importantly, how it manages its properties in response to the needs of the residents is apparent in the high satisfaction of all.

Fellowship Square is providing an important service to Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland where housing is less and less affordable for older adults with limited income and resources. What makes the four houses they oversee different is the variety of programs, services and support provided to residents. These kinds of things are only made possible by community sponsors and individual contributions.

My mom lives at Lake Anne Fellowship House for 2+ years. She is happy and always enjoyed the weekly activities. The staff there is very friendly and competent. They work hard to keep the communities a great place for seniors. She also is very excited to see the new Lake Anne Fellowship House in the next couple years.

I was on the Board of Fellowship Square Foundation and Lake Anne Fellowship House for 2+ years. FSF provides vibrant, loving and affordable communities for older adults in the Northern Virginia area. The staff and volunteers are dedicated and the residents create caring neighborhoods within their buildings. I am very excited to see the new facilities coming to Reston for Lake Anne Fellowship House in the next several years. This is a non-profit that I will continue to support due to the benefits to my community!

I am a resident at Lake Anne Fellowship House. The staff here is the best: friendly and competent. I enjoy the activities every week. My favorites are the exercise class, health screenings, and the informative talks. I also like the common areas where you can sit, relax and meet other residents.

My mom moved into Lake Anne Fellowship House in 1995 and still resides there today. She has always enjoyed the fellowship of the community of people in the building and still sits in the common area on a regular basis to enjoy the activity. The residents are very friendly and the staff looks out for her. Mom and our family are very blessed to have her in such a place.

As a member of the Board of LAFH, I am also very impressed with the level of commitment of the other Board members and of the staff of FSF to this project. It is a blessing to serve.

Fellowship Square is an organization that truly put its residents and their best interests first. Walking through the buildings and talking to residents, its evident that both residents and staff not only support the mission but live and breathe it.

I could go on and on sharing information about Largo Landing Fellowship House. First of all the tenant's actually are like family after getting to know them. I've learned that senior's have a lot of interesting stories to share about their so-call "younger days" and life style. They love to talk about the children and grandchildren. The respect and joy I give and receive from the tenants are really touching to my heart. It's amazing how those tenants that relocated to live with family or moved to other senior developments regret leaving Largo Landing Fellowship House. This is a great place to live and I enjoy working here and looking forward to seeing the senior's each day. They just love the many activities and social gatherings we have on a regular basis. .

Awesome place to live and work. Dedicated first and foremost to residents they serve. Neat clean, and well maintained facilities for an affordable housing. Largo Landing is one of the houses and is kept like a five star hotel. Will recommend fellowship houses to anyone who values quality.

Dedicated staff and committed volunteers work hard to keep the Fellowship Square communities great places to live for seniors. They're an important resource for a region where housing that's affordable is increasingly scarce.

In an area where decent housing is unaffordable for many, Fellowship Square provides an answer. For hundreds of low income older adults, its houses in Reston, Lake Ridge VA and Largo, MD are home.
