About Us

Feeding Our Neighbors Since 1975!


To enhance the quality of life by providing food, basic needs, and self-sufficiency programs through the generous support of our community.


LCAC’s goal is to break the cycle of poverty and prevent homelessness through a variety of services and programs.

The Lorton Community Action Center (LCAC) seeks to provide low-income individuals, senior citizens, and families residing in Fort Belvoir, Lorton, Newington and other portions of southeast Fairfax County with access to basic needs and the opportunity to empower themselves through LCAC’s self-sufficiency programs. LCAC strives to connect people with other programs in the area that will have a positive impact on a family’s long-term “health.”

LCAC helps to prevent homelessness by offering emergency financial assistance for rest or mortgage, as well as utilities. The importance of keeping individuals, since the steadiness of “a place to call home” impacts all aspects of a family’s life from employment to a child’s performance in school.

LCAC is an independent 501(c)3, nonprofit organization that partners with a wide array of religious groups, community organizations, corporations, individuals and local businesses to fulfill it’s mission. Volunteers play an integral role in all aspects of LCAC’s programs and services.
