Families and Individuals


The Commonwealth's dedication to an extraordinary quality of life, job growth and development, healthcare and education creates a wonderful environment for individuals and families to thrive in our state. Virginia's natural beauty, rich history, cultural activities and recreational attractions provide activities that bring individuals and families together. Sometimes individuals and families need assistance. That help also is available by contacting state and local social services.
