What is FISH?

Herndon-Reston FISH, Inc. (Friendly, Instant, Sympathetic Help) is a volunteer, non-sectarian, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping people meet emergencies and short-term needs. FISH has assisted Herndon-Reston residents since 1969.

FISH responds to requests for rent, transportation to medical appointments, furniture, utilities, medical items (including prescriptions) and other short term emergency needs. Our goal is to prevent an eviction, keep utilities from being turned off and help people pay for their prescriptions.

We work closely with social workers from Fairfax County, local hospitals and other nonprofit organizations.
