This is a test. The Steering Committee for the facility recommended the Lorton Community Center be constructed next to the Lorton Library so the LCAC can remain in the neighborhood where it has been serving the community for the past 34 years. This would enable LCAC to continue addressing needs and creating opportunities for our neighbors, many of whom have enormous obstacles in their lives. Struggles with transportation, under-education and the impacts to employment and language barriers are just some of the difficulties facing families and seniors who need LCAC services.
LCAC serves more than 140 senior and disabled households each month, providing educational opportunities for people of all ages in a single facility. Approval of the location would allow LCAC, other non-profit partners, the Lorton Senior Center, the Lorton Library and Neighborhood & Community Services of Fairfax County to work together to create opportunities. For example, a senior could come to the Center for a day’s worth of programming and stay to engage in an LCAC nutrition class.
