Emergency Support Services Unit
The Emergency Support Services (ESS) Unit is a locally funded program that offers emergency and supportive assistance to the residents of Loudoun County. Social workers in this program aid with housing and rent, access to medical and dental visits, prescriptions, utility assistance, food, and many other needs.
This program serves as the liaison to many other community resources, such as the Northern Virginia Dental Clinic, the Lions’ Club Vision Program, the Transitional Housing Program, and the faith community. To receive assistance, you must qualify based on income, the nature of the emergency, and the availability of resources. You will be asked to show verification of income, job status, and other documentation as needed per your situation.
If you need assistance, please call the Department of Family Services
