Utility Assistance

If circumstances have left it difficult to make ends meet, SERVE offers residents of Stafford County financial support through Dominion EnergyShare for electric disconnect notices. If you need assistance please call 540-288-8223 for screening and more information. Assistance is done by appointment only on Tues and Thur as long as funds are available.

Food Pantry

SERVE's Food Pantry provides assistance to families once a month. Our families receive a box of nutritious food, bags of breads, meat and produce meant to provide for a family for a week. We encourage those in need to go to the Department of Social Services and apply for food stamps. For the most part, our pantry helps families with their food needs by filling the gap between monthly assistance.
